For Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW) 2022, we ran a Connect More campaign. The national theme for MHAW was loneliness and the Mental Health Foundation asked people to share their own experiences on social media with the hashtag #IveBeenThere. They also have resources, reports and blogs about loneliness, how it can affect mental health and how to take practical steps to address it.
Our Connect More themes and resources
We created MindWell resources that are perfect to use if you want to support your mental health by having more connections with other people. You could start with our Connect More planner and then use our daily themes and resources for a week.
