Mental Health Awareness Week - 9-15 May 2022

The theme for this year's Mental Health Awareness Week is loneliness and raising awareness on how this can affect our mental wellbeing as well as looking at practical steps we can all take to address it. Loneliness is affecting more and more of us, even on a small Island, and has a huge impact on our physical and mental health. Our connection to other people and our community is fundamental in protecting our mental health and we need to find better ways of tackling this. We can all play our part - keep an eye on the Alderney and Guernsey Mind social media pages for updates during the week.

TRAINING - Mental Health First Aid

This internationally recognised training course teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. Research and evaluation shows that taking part in an MHFA course raises awareness and mental health, can reduce stigma, boosts knowledge and confidence and promotes early intervention. Contact Louisa.mace@guernseymind.org.gg for details.
