More about lonliness
People can become victims of social isolation for many different reasons.
People experiencing illness, disability or poor mental health all have a higher chance of feeling lonely. This can be due to problems with accessibility, confidence, not knowing when you will feel well enough to attend social occasions – the list goes on.
Surprisingly, though, 60% of younger people also report that they suffer with loneliness at some time.
We can see that loneliness and social isolation is not specific to any particular type of person or group.
Loneliness is indiscriminate in its effect.
