Loneliness can have a huge impact on our wellbeing, but there are lots of simple actions you can take to help lift yourself or others out of loneliness.
Following the success of last year’s national campaign, which saw some very positive steps towards people taking action to help feelings of loneliness, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport will soon be launching their new loneliness campaign activity as part of the Better Health - Every Mind Matters campaign.
The campaign primarily aims to reach 16-34 year olds by encouraging them to ‘Lift Someone Out of Loneliness’, knowing that this will likely help their own feelings of loneliness. This is based on recent research that shows that people in this demographic are at higher risk of feeling lonely compared to other age groups, but less likely to seek advice and support.
The Every Mind Matters loneliness webpage has advice for ways to help yourself or others who may be feeling lonely and suggested support routes.
The multi-channel, campaign will launch on 30th January and run until 13th March 2023.
The new and updated campaign toolkit for 2023, with updated key messaging, assets and draft social media copy is now available to download on the Campaign Resource Centre for you to use from 30th January.
They have also developed ‘Lift someone out of loneliness’ campaign posters which can also be downloaded on the Campaign Resource Centre.
If you require further information at this stage, please contact email@example.com.
If you’re feeling lonely search ‘Every Mind Matters; for support and advice or go to https://www.nhs.uk/every-mind-matters/lifes-challenges/loneliness/.

The Anna Freud Centre have recently released a brand-new podcast series – it’s called Talking racism and mental health in schools.
Racism has a detrimental impact on the lives of Black and racially minoritised young people, and when experienced it affects both their mental health and potential to thrive.
The podcast series features experts in mental health, education and anti-racism exploring topics like representation, culture and community, and provides advice and practical steps to support all education staff to create a whole school community which is anti-racist.
Guests on the podcast include former teacher, campaigner, author and speaker the Honourable Stuart Lawrence, and Eve Doran, researcher at Black Learning Achievement and Mental Health (BLAM). The podcast episodes also feature the voices and experiences of teachers.
The Wellbeing Toolkit from the City of Wolverhampton Council has just achieved the PSHE Association Quality Mark for PSHE education resources. This free-to-download Toolkit supports pupils to understand the importance of taking care of their mental health and offers them key knowledge alongside practical skills and strategies.
The Toolkit includes six upper key stage 2 lesson plans with PowerPoint slides as well as teacher guidance and accompanying resources.
The content in each lesson aims to develop pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills in a developmental and practical way.

The ‘Better Health: Every Mind Matters’ suite of free PSHE education lesson plans and resources supports primary and secondary school teachers to promote the health and wellbeing of their pupils.
The latest lesson plans, which have received the PSHE Association Quality Mark, help pupils discuss the emotional impact of bullying, while exploring how to respond safely.
Research shows that one in four children who experienced online bullying did not report it to anyone.
These new Better Health lesson plans — one for Year 6 pupils and another for KS3-4 — use scenario-based activities to explore with pupils how they can support each other and seek help.
The materials are launched to coincide with Anti-Bullying Week 2021 and will help you meet the statutory RSHE requirements to teach about different types of bullying (including cyberbullying).
