One of our primary purposes is to increase wellbeing and life satisfaction of our population by giving New Zealand a focus on conquering loneliness. Stats NZ has shown that wellbeing and life satisfaction in New Zealand have a strong relationship to not feeling lonely.
The current model of dealing with loneliness is fragmented. The issue of loneliness is dispersed over many Government Ministries, making a whole of Government response challenging. Furthermore, non-profit organisations address loneliness as one of several activities, typically as social buddy or help-lines in a crisis response. While this will relieve some loneliness, a more effective long term solution, providing some prevention and early intervention for New Zealand’s mental health system, is to work through the root cause of loneliness in individuals; and upskill individuals to prevent loneliness in the first place. At the same time, New Zealand has laws to protect people from discrimination. And yet some of the loneliness in New Zealand comes about because of discrimination.
