Human beings are social animals, and our relationships with other people matter to us.
Several studies suggest that good relationships are associated with positive mental wellbeing. For example, a 2002 study of 222 students in the US found that the happiest among the group had stronger social relationships than those who were less happy.
Strong relationships with family and friends can allow us to share our feelings and know that we are understood. They provide an opportunity to share positive experiences, and can give us emotional support, as well as the chance to support others.
Relationships help build a sense of belonging and self-worth. There's also evidence that wellbeing can be passed on through relationships, so that being around people with strong mental wellbeing can improve your own mental wellbeing.
