People with a disability or chronic health issue
Living with a disability or long term or chronic health issue can severely affect our wellbeing through unemployment or underemployment, social isolation or exclusion and poor mental or physical health.
People Experiencing Social Isolation
It is important for our wellbeing to have strong and meaningful social connections with our community. Members of our community that do not have these connections can be socially isolated. Social isolation can result in poor mental and physical health.
