Gen (Lonel)Y

Gen Y often gets a hard time from the media for being disconnected, uninterested and apathetic.

But maybe there is a reason for all this disinterest.

Relationships Australia has published a study that has found 25-34 year olds as the loneliest age group, closely followed by the 18-24 year olds.

Worse to these statistics is that although, for some the holiday season is full of fun and family… for these lonely young people, it’s often the worst.

Well the Uniting Church is launching a month-long media campaign to combat this problem of loneliness and this morning Tim Brunero was joined by Reverend Mark Boyce from the Lyell McEwin Hospital to talk about the initiative and whether he was surprised by the results.
