The Campaign to End Loneliness’ new report is the first of its kind to look at how psychological approaches can help tackle loneliness. Due to lockdown, more people than ever before are reporting feelings of loneliness. Mindfulness, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and positive psychology are all approaches that can help people who are feeling lonely.
The goal is that the evidence and insights in this report will shine new light on this issue and improve our collective ability to tackle loneliness.
This is the first policy report on loneliness and psychology in the UK and there is still much to learn. Nevertheless, the case for action is clear.
The report has the backing of the Minister for Loneliness, the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, Cruse Bereavement Care, Relate and the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
