‘Mental Health Foundation announces, ‘loneliness’ as the theme for Mental Health Awareness Week 2022’.

Mental Health Awareness Week is taking place from 9th – 15th May 2022.

According to the Mental Health Foundation, research has found that loneliness has been amplified by the COVID pandemic. As a result of this, loneliness is a fitting theme for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week. ‘Reducing loneliness is a major step towards a mentally healthy society’.

‘Mark Rowland, Chief Executive of the Mental Health Foundation, said: “Loneliness is affecting more and more of us in the UK and has had a huge impact on our physical and mental health during the pandemic.  That is why we have chosen it as our theme for Mental Health Awareness Week 2022.  Our connection to other people and our community is fundamental to protecting our mental health so we much find better ways of tackling the epidemic of loneliness. We can all play a part in this.  The week is also an invaluable opportunity for people to talk about all aspects of mental health, with a focus on providing help and advice’’.’
