TONIGHT's Topic: "Staying Connected!”
WHY CONNECTION IS SO IMPORTANT FOR MENTAL HEALTH?
THE BENEFITS OF SOCIAL CONNECTION ON MENTAL HEALTH
Social connectedness has immense benefits on mental health and lessening existing symptoms of mental illness. Amid a climate of social distancing, this is why Warriors for Life (WFL) is focusing on combating loneliness by spreading awareness and breaking the stigma.
As social beings, humans thrive in a supportive community. The National Alliance on Mental Illness identifies three beneficial elements that having a community provides:
Belonging – Having a sense of community helps people be their true selves while embracing their most positive qualities.
Support – When you’re feeling down or struggling with something, having somebody to call and talk to can help you work through your emotions and make you feel safe.
Purpose – In Support Group and Communities, people not only gain support, but they give it as well. Helping others will help give your life meaning and purpose.
Dial-in TONIGHT with your host Veteran SSG Derrick Iozzio for lively discussion about "Staying Connected" and why it may help us in a positive mental way.
