Ending loneliness and isolation together
"It isn’t the symptoms of my depression that make me relapse, it’s the loneliness I feel when I’m well" Loneliness and social isolation can affect anyone regardless of age, gender and socio-economic status. It affects those in rural communities and urban environments, students, the elderly and everyone in between, and can even impact those that seem to have a vast network of family and friends. Loneliness can lead to numerous physical and mental health problems and is estimated to be as harmful as smoking 15 cigarettes a day and increases the risk of premature death. How can our communities tap into the assets that it has to allow us all to maximise our potential, share skills and knowledge, end loneliness and isolation and really build something special for the future? The first in a series of events, looking at ways to create mentally healthy communities.
