Breaking Loneliness is a documentary about people finding ways to escape loneliness and social isolation.
Loneliness is a social epidemic that is impacting all age groups around the world. Although most of us are connected on social media, we have never felt more alone. Many of us find ourselves isolated from our communities and feeling lonely.
In this new documentary, Breaking Loneliness, we follow four people; Indigenous Peer Support Worker, John Chief Moon, 2SLGBTQ+ Liaison and Peer Support Worker, Jace Laing-Schroeder, volunteer, Tom Greyson and ESL teacher, Julie Kraychy — who have worked to overcome their own loneliness and social isolation and are now helping others to battle theirs.
Produced by Brandy Yanchyk.
