Among their many programs and investments to address health equity, the Humana Foundation leads programs that create healthy emotional connections through eliminating mental health disparities and inequities, creating support networks, and connecting people with programs and services that are committed to suicide prevention, substance abuse treatment and combatting loneliness and isolation. Knowing that loneliness can be a result of a person’s low social connectedness, Humana and the Humana Foundation realized the need for a public health awareness campaign focused on bringing together partners committed to improving health by increasing social connectedness and, consequently, reducing feelings of loneliness. Together, they created “Far From Alone.”
The Humana Foundation and its partners will leverage the “Far From Alone” campaign to drive awareness, action and advocacy designed to increase a person’s social connectedness.
