Loneliness & Mental Health

Loneliness has been associated with several mental health conditions, and it can either act as a predisposing factor to developing a mental health disorder, or it can be a consequence of a mental health disorder itself. Evidence shows that people who feel lonely are more likely to engage in alcohol and drug misuse, and experience anxiety and depression. Loneliness can also lead to poor sleep patterns and disordered eating behaviours.

Loneliness is interlinked with having an understanding of who we really are, what we are looking for in other people, and how confident we feel in exploring these two factors. Here are some experiences that can lead to feelings of loneliness:

  • Being afraid of getting intimate with others
  • Fear of social rejection
  • Struggling with past experiences, such as feelings of loneliness in childhood
  • Signs of depression
  • Going through a divorce, or bereavement
  • Dissatisfaction with a career choice
  • Being around people to whom you don’t feel connected
  • Low self-worth

Loneliness is a psychological condition that does not necessarily refer to being alone, but relates to how connected to others you feel. This explains why sometimes you can feel lonely even though you are with friends or in a crowd. Loneliness, therefore, can result from the absence of a quality relationship that makes us feel understood and valued.

Learning how to cope with loneliness is important. Persistent feelings of loneliness can result in physical and mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and addictions, as well as poor immune system and heart functioning.
