There is a wide range of activities going on in Kingston from football to a face-to-face drop in cafe' and lots more from Mind in Kingston. There is something for everyone.
Healthwatch has been pleased to collaborate with Kingston Council, Public Health, and a large number of organisations to tackle loneliness and isolation on a strategic level.
It may be mental health awareness week once a year, but for us it is a priority area all year.

Together we can tackle loneliness
One in four adults feel lonely some or all of the time. There’s no single cause and there’s no one solution. After all, we’re all different! But, the longer we feel lonely, the more we are at risk of mental health problems. Some people are also at higher risk of feeling lonely than others.
For Mental Health Awareness Week this year, we're raising awareness of the impact of loneliness on our mental health and the practical steps we can take to address it.
