Loneliness is something that everyone experiences from time to time. But when loneliness doesn't go away, it can start to have a serious impact on your mental and physical wellbeing. If you're struggling with these symptoms of chronic loneliness, reach out to one of 3 helplines in Japan for support.

  • Loss of confidence.
  • Feeling that your physical and/or mental health is suffering.
  • Feeling fatigued and low in energy.
  • Drinking or using substances to cope with negative feelings.
  • Experiencing sleep problems such as insomnia, or interrupted sleep.
  • Being unable to develop deep, meaningful connections with others.
  • Increased feelings of stress or anxiety.
  • Finding it hard to relate to others.

If you've felt lonely for a long time, it's probably because you're feeling disconnected from others. There are many explanations for this and they differ from one person to the next. Whatever the reason for it, chronic loneliness can be a very painful and isolating experience.
