In brief: We are human

Human beings are social beings.
We are healthier when we have regular contact with others. Many studies support the fact that in general the more social we are the healthier and happier we tend to be. Living with a disability can be very challenging and can sometimes be isolating. It is important to maintain social connections to stay healthy and avoid depression.
