This annual event has grown year on year and is at the forefront of driving awareness around the importance of good mental health whilst highlighting what we can all do for our own and other people's mental health.
Loneliness is the feeling we experience when there is a mismatch between the social connections we have and those that we need or want. It is something we all feel at times, however, long-term or chronic loneliness can have serious effects on our mental health.
Join us by sharing your own stories to help reduce stigma around loneliness and challenge the stereotypes about who experiences loneliness. If you would like to share your experiences of loneliness to help shatter the stigma, use the hashtag #IveBeenThere and #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek.
