Neighbour Day - research results released

Neighbour Day 2022

Findings show that in addition to reducing loneliness across the nation, Neighbour Day is particularly beneficial in promoting resilience and protecting the mental health of Australian community members during times of collective change or crisis.

“Our research shows connected individuals and communities are more resilient in times of crises and that people involved in Neighbour Day across the years experience better mental health, sustained reductions in loneliness and reductions in psychological distress, which are all signs of ongoing resilience”, said Mr Nick Tebbey, National Executive Officer, Relationships Australia.
Identifying with one’s neighbours and neighbourhood diversifies people’s networks and creates stronger individuals and communities when crises strike.
