It is Mental Health Awareness Week between 9-15 May and at Social Sense, we share in this blog how we work closely with partners to help our communities to access our Greater Moments health and well-being app.
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week, and we believe that it is important to raise awareness and actively support mental health programmes. Not just this week, but all year round. The theme for this year is loneliness.
Loneliness affects one in four people. Most people, for many different reasons, will experience loneliness in their lives at some point. However, feeling lonely for long periods of time is bad for our physical and mental health.

The Greater Moments app provides users a place to journal their feelings, find services for support, capture moments and find out what is on in their area. It is a great resource for not just people with dementia and their carers but for anyone wanting to connect with others in their local area and document their life moments. The app is free to anyone to download and is available on Android, iOS and through the website.
