Mental Health Awareness Week

9-15 May 2022 – Loneliness

https://twitter.com/hashtag/MentalHealthAwarenes    Click here

Loneliness is about feeling disconnected from the people around you to the point it affects your mental wellbeing.

You can feel it in a crowd of friends or by yourself.

Tips if you are feeling lonely:

  • Reach out and talk about it with someone – a friend, or family member, or you can speak to someone anonymously and in confidence at Kooth
  • Be kind to yourself – give yourself a break and do something you love
  • Connect with your community – join a club or volunteer at a local community group, or you can join one of YPAS Groups 
  • Try not to compare yourself with others.

PAS, LLP & the Mental Health Support Teams (MHST) are running a virtual coffee event for parents/carers of children in primary school on 6th April 10:00-11:30. This is an opportunity for parents to discuss any general concerns they may have around their child’s wellbeing and learn about the support available through the local CAMHS partnership.
