Loneliness. It’s part of life. Let’s talk about it.

We’re all affected by loneliness at times in our lives. We can feel lonely in a busy city or rural location, on social media or spending time on our own or with others. Try not to feel embarrassed or ashamed if you do.

Sometimes admitting we feel lonely can be hard. It’s important to remember that lots of people experience similar feelings of loneliness, and that they can pass.

Understanding our own reasons for feeling lonely can help identify and manage these feelings.

Research shows that 16 to 24 year olds are the loneliest age group but also the least likely to take action to help themselves. In fact, figures show that nearly half of students admit they’ve hidden their feelings of loneliness for fear of being judged.
