Loneliness is a key contributory factor to experiencing poor mental health. Over the next three years, we will be working collaboratively with our partners to support communities and individuals who are lonely and who are at risk of poor mental health. 

Speaking at the launch, CEO of Inspire Group, Prof. Peter McBride “We are delighted to have been selected by BBC NI to be their partner in this Christmas campaign. Inspire’s vision is Wellbeing for all, and campaigns such as this are vital is raising awareness and encouraging people to seek help and to help each other. Change Your Mind, as our mental health anti stigma campaign, works with individuals and agencies to stamp out stigma. The first step in this is starting that conversation and connecting with others. Each one of us has a part to play  and each one of us really can make a difference.”
