Loneliness More Common In Young Adults


A recent report conducted by Swinburne University in collaboration with VicHealth has found that more than one in three young adults aged 18 to 25 have reported problematic levels of loneliness. A survey that was taken amongst 1,520 Victorians examined experiences of loneliness, and symptoms of depression and social anxiety, which resulted in one in four young people feeling lonely for three or more days within the last week.

To help us unpack the findings of the report further, The Daily was joined by Michelle Lim, Senior Lecturer and Clinical Psychologist at Swinburne University of Technology.
