Mental Health Awareness Week is happening from 9 to 15 May 2022. The official theme is ‘loneliness’ and, across the week, Mental Health UK encourages you to build meaningful connections with your friends, family, colleagues, and communities.
Loneliness affects many of us at one time or another. We know that loneliness can be both the driver of and a product of poor mental health.
Our society is changing fast. The pandemic has given rise to a sense of loneliness and isolation undermining confidence in daily routines. In recent times, many of us have had far less access to loved ones. Tech is enabling healthcare professionals to see more patients without the need to travel, but on the flip side of the coin, convenience and cost efficiencies are driving more and more activities online.
Our workplaces are also changing. With many adapting to home and hybrid working, we need to embrace this change while building and maintaining meaningful connections with our colleagues.
If you or someone you know suffer from a brain injury and need to talk to someone about your mental health, we can provide psychological assessments for our clients.
