Mental Health Awareness Week from the 9 - 15 May 2022

 

The week, which is hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, is in its 22nd year and runs from 9-15 May.
 
This year, the theme for the week is ‘Loneliness’. Across the country, people will be reflecting on loneliness and how it impacts our mental health. Long-term loneliness is closely linked to mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. In Lincolnshire , the Office Of Police And Crime will be sharing and promoting messages through the week on all of our social media pages, and supporting our local community groups who help with Mental Health Support .

Some of the ways people can participate in Mental Health Awareness Week:

- During Mental Health Awareness Week use the hashtag #IveBeenThere to share experiences of loneliness to support others and give the campaign momentum.

- Sign up to walk, run or job as part of our 80 Miles in May challenge and share your photos using #80MilesinMay and #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek.
