Mental Health Awareness Week 2022
We should all aim to build good mental health. Globally, one in six people will be affected by a mental health issue during their lifetime. Mental health promotion is key and we should do all we can to care for our mental and emotional health.
What is Mental Health Awareness Week?
Mental Health Awareness Week was started by the Mental Health Foundation in 2001 with the aim of promoting positive mental health. It occurs every May and is an opportunity to raise awareness of mental health and also to develop ways of maintaining good mental health.
Effects of Social Isolation on Mental Health
The number of people living alone is on the increase. Recent studies have examined the psychological effects of living alone as well as the negative effects of social isolation. In particular, research has looked at the effects of loneliness in elderly people and the side effects of loneliness. Mental Health Awareness Week is therefore an opportunity for people to work together to raise awareness of the impact of loneliness on our mental health.
