Isolation and Withdrawn Quick Guide

OVERVIEW:
The Isolation and Withdrawn Quick Guide is for Individuals/Families who may be struggling from the effects of isolation. This can be related to a death of spouse, an illness, or a more unique life situation that leads them feeling isolated. It may also manifest as an attribute of anxiety, depression, or others. They may need community supports to help them become more engaged in activities and resources that will help with isolation.

GOAL:
The goal of the Isolation and Withdrawn Quick Guide is to help individuals understand the risks associated with social isolation, as well as how to highlight potentially isolated individuals and the resources out there to help them integrate back into society.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS:
