Loneliness is something we all can experience at any point in our lives, which can have a huge impact on our mental health and wellbeing.
Sometimes reaching out to someone with as little as three words – fancy a chat? – can make a big difference.
This Loneliness Awareness Week (13-17th June) as part of the Better Health: Every Mind Matters campaign, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport is encouraging people to ‘Lift Someone Out of Loneliness’ by taking simple action to help someone who may be feeling lonely. If we do this regularly, we can all help to lift each other up.
