Mental Health Awareness Week 2022 Theme Announced

The week will run from Monday 9th May until Sunday 15th May 2022 and will raise awareness of the impact of loneliness on our mental wellbeing, as well as the practical steps that can be taken to address it.

The Mental Health Foundation today issued a press release to announce their chosen theme:

"Loneliness affects millions of people in the UK every year and has had a huge impact on our mental health during the pandemic.   

That is why we have chosen it as our theme for Mental Health Awareness Week 2022. Our connection to other people and our community is fundamental to protecting our mental health and we need to find better ways of tackling the epidemic of loneliness. We can all play a part in this."

Mental Health Awareness Week was started by the Foundation more than two decades ago and has now grown to become one of the UK’s most recognised campaigns. It has helped transform awareness of mental health and grow understanding of how we can improve mental health, both as individuals and as a society.

The CWU Postal Constituency in the North West and its many Union Safety Reps and Area Safety Reps will play a major role in promoting the week, as in previous years, with events and information stands and posters in workplaces; and working closely with the management nationally of the Royal Mail Group.

Unionsafety, will bring you reports on the events of the week.
