LONELINESS IS A DEVASTATING EPIDEMIC


Loneliness is more than just an unpleasant feeling — it poses a serious threat to both individual and societal well-being. It is linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, dementia, stroke, depression, anxiety, and premature death. The health consequences of social disconnection are comparable to smoking up to 15 cigarettes a day and are even more detrimental than obesity and physical inactivity. The negative effects of a society lacking in social connection ripple through our schools, workplaces, and civic organizations, reducing performance, productivity, and engagement.

Key Facts:

  • Widespread Loneliness: 48% of Europeans experience loneliness some or most of the time.
  • Pre-Pandemic Loneliness in Belgium: Before COVID-19, 64% of Belgians reported feeling moderately or very lonely.
  • Vulnerable Demographics: Certain groups are particularly at risk of loneliness, including those with lower income, single individuals, the young and the elderly, people with an immigrant background, and the LGBTQ+ community.
  • Health Risks of Social Isolation: Social isolation severely harms health, increasing the risk of heart disease, stroke, anxiety, depression, type II diabetes, and dementia by 30-50%.

The profound and widespread impact of loneliness has elevated this issue to a policy priority at the EU, Flemish, and Walloon government levels, as they work to mitigate the effects and foster social connection.


SOCIAL CONNECTION: THE BEST PATH TO HAPPINESS


Around the globe, scientific research from institutions like Harvard Medical School, the University of Oxford, Universiteit Gent, the University of Queensland, and the Centers for Disease Control all reach the same conclusion: enhancing social connection is the most effective way to combat loneliness.

Improving social connections not only alleviates loneliness but also supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal of reducing noncommunicable diseases (such as heart disease and diabetes) and mental health disorders by 33% by 2030.
