Social connection and community

We feel more connected when we care for others, people care about us, and we are part of community​​.​
Feeling connected is an important part of health and wellbeing. It can also help us feel stronger when life is hard or stressful.
 
Leisure activities can improve your physical and mental wellbeing, as well as your social participation. They can improve your sense of control, and your feelings of self-esteem and self-fulfilment.
 
Taking time to rest, relax and have fun is a vital part of a healthy lifestyle. Cooking, playing music, camping, arts and craft, going to music festivals, attending concerts and parties or hanging out with friends are all good ways that you can be involved and participate in activities you enjoy.
 
There is also the option of joining a community participation or life skills program. The focus of these programs is going out and participating in the community, making friends and connections, and pursuing individual interests.
