Is Loneliness a Mental Illness?

Being alone and feeling lonely are two different concepts. Many people enjoy being alone, or enjoy being alone once in a while, it is a life style that they choose; but people do not enjoy loneliness, which is a negative feeling and emotion.

Feeling lonely is not a mental illness itself, but it is connected to mental problems. Having mental problems can make one feel lonely, and feeling lonely can worsen mental problems. Remember, we talked about that mental problems can become physical pain and illness because mind problems can develop physical problems. Therefore, manage loneliness is important for our well-being.

We can feel lonely for many reasons, or for no reason at all. We can feel lonely because we are experiencing a bereavement, going through a relationship break-up, retiring and losing the social contact you had at work, changing jobs and feeling isolated from your co-workers, starting at university or moving to a new area or country without family, friends or community networks. We sometimes feel lonely in crowd of people, or having many friends, so we can feel lonely for no reason at all.
