Research has shown that social isolation has damaging impacts on health, well-being, and overall quality of life. Low-income people and seniors are among the most vulnerable to social isolation. Conversely, being more socially connected has a positive influence on physical and mental health and wellbeing. At a societal level, higher levels of social capital are associated with better economic performance, lower levels of crime, improved public health, and more effective government institutions.
