19 Ways Friendships Are Great For Your Mental Health ?
Learning Disability Week – Hosted by Mencap
The theme of the week is the importance of friendships during lockdown.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are all currently living in lockdown. This means that many people with a learning disability are feeling isolated, as they are unable to see their friends and families.
We know that some people with a learning disability already experience high levels of loneliness and social isolation and that this will only have been made worse by the lockdown.
We want to show the importance of friendships to help with tackling isolation, as well as exploring the different ways of maintaining friendships during this unusual time.
