A significant public health concern is loneliness, particularly among the elderly as a result of the increased prevalence of nuclear households. There is a direct correlation between loneliness and depression, and a recent study demonstrated how resilience and perceived social support can have a significant impact on reducing the negative effects of loneliness on depression.

More than 500 people were included in the study conducted by Ahmedabad-based Wellness Space, which is renowned for its substantial research in the field of mental health.

Wellness Space tackled emotional problems like anxiety and depression, poor wellbeing, and insomnia by using the Release Reframe Toolkit, which refers to release from the body and reframe from the mind. Hypnosis, inner child integration therapy, re-consolidation of traumatic memories (RTM), and relationship drama are just a few of the modalities that are part of the Release Reframe Toolkit.

Our research shown that, with therapeutic intervention, resilience and perceived social support might lessen the detrimental effects of loneliness on depression. Since loneliness is a major contributing factor to depression, but its effects can be mitigated by therapeutic intervention through resilience-building, the findings have implications for psychologists and psychotherapists, according to Dr. Gunjan Y. Trivedi, who presented the study’s findings in February at the National Academy of Psychologists (NAOP) in Visakhapatnam.

Wellness Space helps people with mental health problems like sadness and anxiety. Under the direction of Dr. Trivedi, the team—which also included Drs. Hemalatha Ramani, Neha Pandya, Parishi Thakore, and Riri G. Trivedi—investigated whether resilience and perceived social support could alter the relationship between depression and loneliness.
