MHAW Keeping People Connected Campaign

women recording video selfie for the keeping people connected campaignThe theme of Mental Health Awareness Week 2022 was loneliness. To support the week, Community Living Well ran its own campaign, ‘Keeping People Connected’. We wanted to highlight all of the incredible organisations in our local community who work to keep people connected and combat loneliness.

We asked people in the community to record a short video message about their organisation, about any particular activities or events they run that connect people, help them to make friends and to stay connected.

We had a fantastic response and received lots of wonderful videos from local people and organisations.

We shared them all on our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter pages or you can view them all below.

We will continue to share videos throughout May 2022. If you’d like to submit a video, we have a guide on how to record and send it to us.

  1. Decide which local organisation you’d like to talk about
  2. Record your video using your smartphone
  3. Send it to us
  4. We’ll share it on social media!
