Social Isolation Affecting Young People

When we think of Social Isolation we tend to assume that this relates mainly to the elderly. We also tend to relate social isolation to being lonely, but not everyone who is socially isolated is lonely - some people prefer their own company and like to live a hermetic existence. Like wise, some people who are surrounded by lots of other people can experience feelings of loneliness.

An analysis of the characteristics and circumstances associated with loneliness carried out by the Office of National Statics (ONS) found that Younger adults aged 16 to 24 years reported feeling lonely more often than those in older age groups.

The report suggests that "it’s possible that people become more resilient to loneliness as they get older, possibly through the experience of significant life events and life transitions." The full report can be read by clicking

Mind tells us that loneliness can have a negative impact on the person's mental health and provides the following strategies to cope with loneliness:
  • Think about what is making you lonely
  • Make new connections
  • Open up
  • Take it slow
  • Be careful when comparing yourself to others
  • Check how you are feeling
  • Get some help
  • Read others' stories
