The Effect of Loneliness on Disabled People

Disability Rights Commissioner Paula Tesoriero shares a small video on the impact of loneliness on disabled people. 

"More than 11% of disabled people reported feeling lonely most or all of the time. In fact, disabled people are four times more likely to experience loneliness than non-disabled people. The negative effects of loneliness make this a public health challenge."

The Still Alone Together report is available on the Helen Clark Foundation websiteCover of the Still Alone Together report.
