Mental Health Awareness Week

When: 9th May 2022 start of day - 15th May end of day

This Mental Health Awareness Week, let's talk about loneliness.

Feeling lonely isn't in itself a mental health problem, but having a mental health problem can increase your chances of feeling lonely, and loneliness can also have a negative impact on your mental health.

Some research suggests that loneliness is associated with an increased risk of certain mental health problems, including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, sleep problems and increased stress.

How can you help?
Did you know North Staffs Mind is an independent, local charity? Although we're part of the Mind network, we have our own CEO and trustees, run our own local services and are responsible for our own fundraising. We rely on the generosity of local people to run many of our services, including our support groups, online chat and the Maccas Project.

As we're an independent, local charity, by fundraising or donating to North Staffs Mind directly, your donation stays local.
