Updated: May 16




Loneliness. It’s not a word you might associate with the life of a busy PR & marketing professional.

But it’s a theme that will champion Mental Health Awareness Week 2022 this year and it’s certainly a state of mind that I am familiar with. Alongside plenty of other mental health challenges that I continue to navigate in my new freelance life!

Here are some fantastic resources suggested by fellow freelancers to help navigate stress, anxiety and recognise you are not alone!
