Mental Health Awareness Week 9 -15th May 2022 – Loneliness
It’s Mental Health Awareness Week. Let’s do all we can to spread the word and support others – especially those who are lonely or struggling.
“Together we can tackle loneliness
One in four adults feel lonely some or all of the time. There’s no single cause and there’s no one solution. After all, we’re all different! But the longer we feel lonely, the more we are at risk of mental health problems. Some people are also at higher risk of feeling lonely than others.
For Mental Health Awareness Week this year, we’re raising awareness of the impact of loneliness on our mental health and the practical steps we can take to address it.” – Mental Health Foundation.
We at Tridan say:
Let’s talk about mental health and loneliness, be open and honest.
Remember to look after yourself and your colleagues.
The age-old saying “A problem shared is a problem halved” is so true and is the start of opening up and helping yourself.
Try to do some enjoyable things that will keep you busy – A hobby, having a sort out, modelling or puzzles.
Try to do things to stimulate your mind – starting a course for learning or listening to podcasts
Think about doing a physical activity physical exercise can help with loneliness – A walk in the park, exercise, or simply dancing around your living room.
Engage with people you meet in your daily life – By sharing a polite greeting, you may find that you give someone else a positive lift too.
Be positive – focus on the good things happening around you.
The health and happiness of our employees is paramount to everyday life and our business and is something we take very seriously. Our managers have regular training to assist in day-to-day problems and have recently had further mental health/resilience training.
Remember, we are here for you.
