Mental Health Awareness Week

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. Throughout the week on Liverpool CAMHS social media channels, we’ll be raising awareness of the impact loneliness can have on our mental well-being and sharing some steps we can take to address it.

Loneliness is affecting more and more of us in the UK and has had a huge impact on our physical and mental health during the pandemic.

Connecting with people and our local communities is important to protect our mental health and together, we can play a part in tackling loneliness.

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

The NHS Every mind matters website has tips on mental health and self-care for young people, you can find it here
