About this event

**PLEASE NOTE – these are uncertain times for everyone, and increasingly challenging for NHS services. We are delighted that workshops are selling out, however, we have seen an increase in attendees being uncontactable for their sessions. Whilst we appreciate each day brings new obstacles in these times, we do ask that you plan your days accordingly to be able to attend a booked workshop. If you cannot attend a booked workshop, please do cancel 24hrs in advance by phoning 020 3513 6264, otherwise spaces are unavailable for people who really need them during this time. We are extremely appreciative for your cooperation whilst we strive to reach every Wandsworth resident who would like to access our services.**

Although most people experience feelings of loneliness at different moments in their lives, the current pandemic related circumstances have significantly contributed to an increase of feelings associated with this universal experience. The experience of loneliness is highly subjective; an individual can be alone without feeling lonely and can feel lonely even when with other people. Nevertheless, loneliness is a common and a most important obstacle to happiness and wellbeing. This workshop will focus on increasing our awareness of the factors contributing to loneliness and explore a range of practical strategies to work through these very common but draining and upsetting experiences.

This workshop will be delivered online via Microsoft Teams. It is free to attend for all residents of the London Borough of Wandsworth or those registered with a Wandsworth GP who are over the age of 18. Our Wellbeing team is focused entirely on improving the emotional, physical, spiritual and overall wellbeing of the residents of Wandsworth. We want to work towards providing a more inclusive and socially adapted service for the borough whilst lowering the stigma and discrimination attached to mental health & wellbeing and the services that exist to support these areas of our lives.

Prior to the workshop, you will be asked to complete a short questionnaire aimed at ensuring we offer you all the support you require. If you have queries regarding this, please speak to the Practitioner at the start of the session. We all have mental health, it's ok to talk.
