Kasley Killam presents a ground breaking redefinition of health by introducing the concept of social health as a critical component of overall well-being.

While traditional wellness advice focuses on physical and mental health, Killam, a Harvard-trained social scientist, emphasises the importance of human connection.

Research shows that strong relationships significantly contribute to happiness, health, and longevity. Those with a strong sense of belonging are more likely to report excellent health, while lack of social support drastically increases the risk of mortality.

Killam offers a simple yet powerful framework to understand, evaluate, and bolster social health.

She weaves together cutting-edge science, practical wisdom, and real-life examples, providing actionable insights to help you cultivate and sustain meaningful connections.

This essential handbook not only addresses the loneliness epidemic but also inspires a holistic view of well-being that includes physical, mental, and social dimensions.

Robert Emmons, Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Positive Psychology, praises the book for its concrete solutions to enhance global social health, ensuring we can flourish together.
