The Power of Relationships

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.

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go with others.”

– African Proverb
