Description

CCNB facilitates community conversations about issues that matter to communities. Through our practice we are seeing that the impact of loneliness and isolation can be devastating.

Loneliness;

• is as harmful as smoking 15 cigarettes a day;

• is worse for a person's health than obesity;

• increases the risk of early death by up to 32%.
