If you read the phrase, "Loneliness is an epidemic in this country," you're reading the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
If you hear, "Suicides among teenagers and people over 60 are at an all time high," that's scratches the surface of the condition.
And when you're told that, "Antidepressants and anti-anxiety drugs have hit new highs in the frequency of prescription," that is just the symptoms of the condition.
We have a problem.
People benefit from another's presence. Yet we have never been more alone.
And it is common that an understanding voice makes the difference. The sentiment and care that is delivered across the phone from somebody that is truly present can make the difference between life and death. Suicide hotlines have miles of success stories that changed the trajectory from hopelessness to hope.
But many people don't want to speak to somebody because it's a crisis...
...they just want somebody to talk to. Just a voice to keep them company, awake, interested, and engaged. To let them know there's somebody on the other end of the phone that cares.
