Guide to investing in your relationships
Good relationships protect our mental health and wellbeing at any stage of life. People who are more socially connected are happier, physically healthier and live longer. Loneliness can be toxic to our wellbeing – our health declines earlier and we can have shorter lifespans. It’s important to remember that it is good, supportive relationships that protect our bodies and our minds. This guide from the Mental Health Foundation will outline what each of us can do to create better relationships with ourselves, with the people we are close to, and with those around us.
