Addressing Social Isolation, Disconnection & Loneliness

In Canada, our schools are more than just places of learning; they are communities where young minds grow not only intellectually but socially. Yet, many students face the challenges of social isolation, disconnection, and loneliness, impacting their academic performance, happiness and overall well-being.

THE STARK REALITY

Desire for More

A significant number of students express a desire for more social engagement within their schools. This longing for connection underscores the need for social health education and empowerment that foster a more inclusive and connected school environment.

Growing risk of loneliness

These are pressing issues within student populations, with the majority of students reporting feelings of loneliness throughout the school year. These feelings can impact mental and physical health, academic achievement and future success.

Health Risks

Similar to adults, chronic or persistent feelings of loneliness can have serious mental and physical health impacts on young people. These include increased risks of anxiety and depression, can impair brain development, have a negative impact on academic performance and create longer-term cumulative health impacts in adulthood.

Impact

Why This Matters

Social connections and social health within schools are essential for student development. They enhance learning experiences, support emotional growth, and lay the foundation for lifelong relationships.

INTRODUCING
