How is Your Social Health?

We all know how important it is to care for our physical and mental health, but it’s also important to check in on your social health. Social health is our ability to create meaningful and rewarding relationships with other people. Feeling connected makes us feel loved and valued and this in turn has a positive effect on our health. If you’re looking to improve your social health, consider signing up for a virtual or in-person class at a senior centre. Victoria Lifeline’s GoSafe personal help button can also help you feel safe while you look for ways to stay active and connected.
