Extension's Role in Addressing Social Isolation.

Adam T Hughes ·
At a recent Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) Community and Public Health Program Work Team (PWT) meeting, the topic of social isolation was discussed. Groups of Extension educators from across New York State spoke about how their existing work supports people navigating social isolation. There were also a number of ideas on how Extension could play a larger role in partnership with other health-focused community-based organizations to address this issue.

We often talk about mental health and extension's role in addressing mental ill health symptoms: substance use, addiction, other anti-social behaviors. We rarely consider our role in working on "root causes" or social-environmental determinants of mental health disparities or low/poor social-emotional well-being among subpopulations (e.g., diverse demographics-age, gender, race, ethnicity, rural, etc.). We also tend to miss opportunities to plan and work across sectors & systems to...

Really important topic. We are looking at how we can "multisolve" this issue. How to engage older adults in our work and in the community (building social connections) while connecting them with critical community resources and even involving them in programs like Aging Mastery and or Powerful Tools for Caregivers, depending on what they need and are interested in. The more resources and tools in our toolbox, the better!

Such an important conversation! Social connection is a part of the definition of mental wellbeing, and is so critical for our work across Extension. View a short video on the difference between mental illness and mental health and another about stress and isolation on the University of Minnesota Extension website.

The Building Resilient Inclusive Communities Program (BRIC) includes a focus on reducing social isolation and loneliness. It's a collaboration between CDC, DNPAO, and National Association for Chronic Disease Directors. Funding flows through state health departments.It would be interesting to find out if any funded states collaborated with Extension. https://chronicdisease.org/bric/
