The last two years have been extra stressful, especially if you’re a parent or carer of a young person  It's normal and entirely understandable if you're feeling overwhelmed frustrated, worried or exhausted about the situation.

You might be finding it harder than ever at the moment to know how to best look after your child’s mental health and wellbeing, as well as your own. If you’re struggling, you are not alone.

Here are some resources that can really help. 

Mental Health Awareness Week 2022 - Loneliness

The theme of the 2022 Mental Health Awareness Week is 'Loneliness'. Loneliness is affecting more and more of us. Almost 1 in 14 people aged 16 or over in Great Britain say they are lonely. Our connection to other people and our community is fundamental to protecting our mental health, and we need to find better ways of tackling widespread feelings of loneliness - and we can all play a part in this.
Reducing loneliness is a major step towards creating a mentally healthy society, so the theme for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week is aimed at raising awareness of the impact of loneliness on our mental wellbeing and the practical steps we can take to address it.
What is the difference between loneliness and being alone?
Loneliness is the feeling you experience when there is a negative gap between the social connections you want and those you have. Alone but not lonely means we may be apart from others but we are not empty nor feel neglected.

Isolation and Loneliness: What's Up With Everyone?

Loneliness and isolation often go together, and feeling alone can become a mental health concern. But you can take small steps to feel connected again. Just like Merve in the video, when we feel lonely, we may experience low mood, low-self-esteem, and worrying thoughts. We can feel lonely even when we are with other people, especially if we don’t feel like we belong. Sometimes, if we are already experiencing poor mental health, and do not feel understood, this can lead to feeling lonely.
