Everyone deserves to belong
Connection. Belonging. Community.
CircleTalk is a relationship-centered program with the potential to transform the culture of any place people gather into a place where people experience an intimate community and meaningful connections with their peers.
On May 3, 2023, Dr. Vivek Murthy released a Surgeon General Advisory officially declaring loneliness an epidemic in America. The Surgeon General’s report emphasizes that loneliness and social isolation are not just emotional issues but can also lead to serious health problems, including increased risk of heart disease, stroke, dementia, and premature death.
The impact of loneliness and isolation is compared to that of smoking 15 cigarettes a day.
Over the years, there has been a significant uptick in the number of studies and the size of their samples, yielding increasingly robust evidence that highlights a 50% increase in the odds of survival associated with strong social connections.
