We are more an idea club than a book club, so instead of discussing specific questions about each book, we read the books, and then let the discussion of ideas from the readings happen as we chat.
Together: The Healing Power of Human Connection in a Sometimes Lonely World
by Vivek H Murthy M.D.
In this groundbreaking book, Murthy argues that loneliness is the underpinning to the current crisis in mental wellness and is responsible for the upsurge in suicide, the opioid epidemic, the overuse of psych meds, the over-diagnosing and pathologizing of emotional and psychological struggle. The good news is that social connection is innate and a cure for loneliness. In Together, the 19th Surgeon General will address the importance of community and connection and offer viable and actionable solutions to this overlooked epidemic.
