Reducing the Impact of Loneliness and Social Isolation on Mental Health and Substance Use in Colorado.

Peer Assistance Services, a Colorado-based non-profit, collaborated with Wisdo to address the impact of loneliness and social isolation on the mental health and substance use of adult Coloradans. Wisdo recruited 815 Colorado residents to join its peer support and clinical referral platform and analyzed changes in key health measures. Results at day 90 showed statistically significant (p<0.05) reductions in loneliness, depression, and anxiety rates, as well as a significant reduction in alcohol risk and the number of mentally and physically unhealthy days experienced by participants.

The following white paper highlights the positive impact that the Wisdo program had on reducing loneliness, social isolation, depression, anxiety and substance abuse.
