Loneliness affects many of us at one time or another and can have a huge impact on our physical and mental health. The social distancing and lockdowns of the pandemic have also increased feelings of loneliness for many.
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week (9 to 15 May 2022) and we’re encouraging everybody to take time out to talk to someone about how you’re feeling.
Sometimes talking to a professional can be helpful too – Keeping Well is here to support all key workers in the Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes area.
If you’re feeling lonely, low, anxious, stressed, depressed or finding it difficult to cope then we are here to help. Whether you are experiencing new mental health difficulties or a return of previous symptoms, support is available.

We have a range self-help resources on the topic of loneliness and isolation that you may also find helpful to read.
