It’s Mental Health Awareness Week, focussing this year on loneliness. We are all different and experience life differently. Loneliness is something that affects us all in different ways too. How loneliness impacts us and how we cope, or don’t, also varies greatly form one person to another.
One in four adults feels lonely some or all of the time. You may be in a close personal relationship, or live in a busy household, but you can still feel lonely. There are many things you can do to combat loneliness but there is no one solution that will work for everyone.
