A new campaign toolkit for Mental Health Awareness Week 2022, with updated key messaging and draft social media copy, is officially live and available to download on the Campaign Resource Centre for you to use during the week.
The Mental Health Foundation’s Mental Health Awareness Week is running from 9-15 May and, with this year’s theme exploring the impact of loneliness, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport in partnership with the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (part of the Department of Health and Social Care) are continuing to encourage people to ‘lift someone out of loneliness’.
The campaign points to the Every Mind Matters loneliness webpage for support and advice on dealing with loneliness. It will also encourage people to complete a Mind Plan quiz, to get a personalised mental health action plan with practical tips to help you deal with stress, anxiety, low mood and trouble sleeping, plus advice on how to cope with feelings of loneliness.
Any and all support for the campaign during the week is hugely appreciated. If you require further information before Mental Health Awareness Week, please contact
