Making social connections an antidote for loneliness, and your health
February 2018, The Suburban, by Mike Cohen
The Cummings Centre is uniquely positioned to address loneliness and social isolation through its extensive program offering and volunteer opportunities. The Centre brings people together on every level to engage in the many unique options for creative expression, learning, social clubs and support groups. Loneliness and social isolation are harmful to our health. In fact, research shows that lacking social connections is as damaging to our health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day.
