Relationships Australia Study Shows Few People Speak To Neighbours – Linked To Poor Health

Media release


The latest research from Relationships Australia has revealed a low level of community participation among survey respondents, which, in other research, is linked to poor physical health and mental well-being.

According to Alison Brook, National Executive Officer, Relationships Australia: “The February community participation survey revealed that 65% of people responding never, rarely or only occasionally chatted with their neighbours and a similar proportion never, rarely or only occasionally attended events or meetings that bring people together.”
