  • Loneliness is a growing epidemic in the UK with 2.4 million adults feeling lonely, according to recent data from the Office for National Statistics. But what's this doing to our physical health? And how can you help yourself if you feel lonely?

    Older people are especially vulnerable to loneliness and social isolation, with over half of all people aged 75 and over living alone. Two fifths of all older people - around 3.9 million - say the TV is their main company. Older generations aren't the only age groups affected, though. Young adults are more likely to feel lonely than older age groups, with almost 10% of people aged 16 to 24 'always or often' lonely.

    Loneliness can cause us to feel 'outsiders', experiencing life in a solitary bubble, unable to connect with others; it can make us mistakenly believe we are somehow failures in life, and can cause us to physically ache for human contact.

    Breaking up is very hard to come to terms with. You believed that you found the partner of your dreams and that you would both be happy together for the rest of your lives. If only everything in life could be so simple, yet breaking up is a fact of life and differences often open up cracks that were not there before. It's heartbreaking, usually more so for one person than the other and that can leave you in a very lonely place. Feeling vulnerable and raw after a break up is natural, it's part of being human; what is not natural is for you to suffer this pain and grief by yourself. Many, many people have gone through this process of breaking up, but they have come to terms with it and learned the best ways to move on.

    Identifying and diagnosing a mental health issue is never an easy process. Most mental health struggles do not live in isolation, and many of us have negative thought or mood tendencies that, while challenging, do not qualify as a disorder.
