Mental Health Awareness Week 2022

May 11, 2022


Mental Health Awareness Week 2022

This is Mental Health Awareness Week, and this years’ theme is ‘loneliness’. Throughout the week Mental Health UK are encouraging us all to build meaningful connections with our friends, family, colleagues and communities.  Emanuel Whittaker FRA Site Supervisor, Adam Berry is a strong advocate of mental health support, and together with friends Suzette Carlyle-Thorley and Helen Somerville, they’ve come up with a novel plan to get the message across.

A published author of ‘Soul Rise, Soul Expressions’, Adam was inspired to write ‘Loneliness’ to commemorate Mental Health Awareness Week. Adam, Suzette and Helen reached out to friends, family and colleagues, and were overwhelmed by the demonstrations of support. Together with the support of Paralympian Sir Lee Pearson CBE, and Oscar nominated Animator/Director Barry Jonathan Crabtree Purves, and 20+ of their family and friends, they have brought ‘Loneliness’ to life.

Adam explained: “I hope that this poem will encourage those experiencing mental health issues and loneliness to connect during Mental Health Awareness Week, and realise that they are not alone… there are so many of us willing to offer a kind and helpful hand.”
