As Mental Health Awareness Week kicks off, workplace wellbeing
organisation Stress Matters has launched a new workshop to combat loneliness.
Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK is taking place
between 9-15 May under the theme of combating loneliness. To mark the occasion, Stress
Matters has launched the ‘Loneliness, Our Love Languages and Connections’
The focus of the workshop will be on building connections and
identifying love languages that can help reduce loneliness. Participants will learn
how to identify different types of loneliness and how they affect people. Stress
Matters will also share practical advice on reducing loneliness in our everyday
Workshop participants will cover:
- What is
loneliness and the impact of it
different categories of loneliness
- What is a
love language and how does knowing it help create connections
- How to
create a meaningful connection and help identify them
Throughout Mental Health Awareness Week, Stress Matter will
be sharing content and resources online and on its social media channels. In preparation, members
of the Stress Matters team have been writing blog posts based on the seven key
ideas from the book, Lost Connections. These will be posted on Linkedin.
Stress Matters is also offering discounted training throughout
Mental Health Awareness week to encourage people to become Mental Health First
Aiders. Those interested in undertaking the training will receive £500 off the
price of the course if they enquire during Mental Health Awareness Week and book
in by the end of May.

Languages and Connections’ workshop and MHFA training here.
