Loneliness is an emotional response to isolation or lack of companionship. It typically includes anxious feelings about a lack of connection or communication with other people. Loneliness can be felt even when surrounded by other people. Feeling lonely is part of being human, but when it persists it can adversely affect your mental health, for example making you feel anxious about talking with others, causing a lack motivation to stay in touch with people, or feeling affected by stigma around your mental health.

We all have times when life’s problems affect our mental health. Maybe you are feeling down and need a safe space to chat, or you would like to meet new people or try something different? This website lists over 100 groups in and around Camden, many offering free or low-cost activities. While some will help with a specific problem, others offer everyday activities to encourage us all to get out and about. Why not find what appeals to you. You can make a list of the groups that are of interest with ‘My Shortlist’.
