47% of adults (16+) experience some degree of loneliness.
21% reported that they never felt lonely; 32% hardly ever; and 47% occasionally/some of the time/often/always.
THIS IS BECAUSE...
Isolation is seen as something that can be dealt with alone.
No one seems to have time for anyone, people are busy with their own lives and forget to interact with the people who matter the most.
WHO DOES THIS AFFECT?
THERE IS NO SHAME IN FEELING LONLEY
ISN'T IT SCARY THAT...
Being lonely is thought to be on a par with other public health priorities like obesity or smoking.
loneliness increases the risk of depression, low self-esteem, reported sleep problems and increased stress response.
Isolation has negative effects on one's health, as social interaction is a physical and mental requirement since humans are social creatures.
