As a company that is passionate about people we wanted to join in the conversation
We all know that being able to talk about mental health doesn’t just come at a certain time of the year but from 9th to 15th May 2022 the conversation gets that little bit louder.
Mental health can affect anyone and according to Mental Health UK one in four of us may be impacted at some point. The theme of this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week is ‘loneliness’, something that doesn’t only affect personal lives but work and social situations too.
An article in The Lancet in 2020 commented that loneliness ‘is a serious public health concern of our time because of its strong connection with cardiovascular, autoimmune, neurocognitive, and mental health problems’.
Building connections to help overcome feelings of isolation is a huge part of what goes towards making a happy and successful workplace and no more so than in dental practices.
