The power of being connected is huge. The California Department of Mental Health did a study and discovered the negative impact of isolating yourself.
If you isolate yourself from others and do not have close friendships you are…
- Three times more likely to die an early death.
- Four times more likely suffer emotional burnout.
- Five times more likely to become clinically depressed.
- Ten times more likely to be hospitalized for an emotional or mental disorder.
For your own mental health, get connected.
Be part of a healthy community.
