Stay Up to Date with the Friendship Lab Project
The research is startling: friendship decreases anxiety and depression, increases our lifespan, buffers us against addictions, and raises our happiness levels. All those coffee dates, weekend hikes and late-night chats help us face our adversities, choose our best paths, and discover who we are. And yet 1-in-4 of us has no close friends, a rate that is only increasing.
We are working on a major project that will champion adult friendship and the practices that make it thrive. Here are two ways you can get involved:
1. Take the Survey
Three years of work have gone into crafting the Friendship Lab course, our first project offering, and pilots will soon run. But to ensure scratch meets itch, would you tell us about the barriers you’ve faced in making and maintaining your friendships? Your answers are anonymous and will help us refine course content, inform podcast series, and more.
