If I Can Stop This Happening To Any Other Family, I Will.

This week is Loneliness Awareness Week. Did you know that loneliness is more likely to affect young people aged 16-24? According to research in 2018, that's 3 times higher than for people aged over 65.

Unfortunately, like mental health, loneliness has a stigma attached to it. Loneliness Awareness Week is about breaking that down and saying that it's okay to feel lonely. It's a normal human emotion.

What can you do to help someone who is feeling isolated?

Talk. Visit. Knock on a neighbour's door. Strike up a conversation in the supermarket. Be present. Put down your phone. RECONNECT with people. It doesn't take much but a little goes a very long way.
