Apr 23 2024 • 43 mins

In episode 21 of season 3, hosts Jenny and Billy delve into the complex relationship between loneliness, emotional support, and their roles as precursors to suicidal behaviors and self-harm. They explore how subjective feelings of isolation can persist even in the presence of others and emphasize the critical importance of seeking connection and support during these vulnerable times. The episode discusses how loneliness affects people differently at various life stages, noting that feelings of isolation can peak during late adolescence, decrease through middle adulthood, and rise again in later years. Jenny shares insights on how our internal perceptions of social support can influence our emotional well-being more than the actual number of people in our lives. They discuss how research has shown that loneliness correlates with lower life satisfaction and resilience, making it a crucial area of focus for suicide prevention.
