The Japanese government's working group on loneliness and social exclusion has approved a plan to combat these negative phenomena.

According to the Japan Times, according to the Japanese Prime Minister, this priority plan will serve as a platform for the government to tackle loneliness in society.

For example, it provides for the creation of a 24-hour psychological support service, as well as activities to make lonely people feel connected with others.

It is noted that the problems of loneliness and social isolation have worsened during the coronavirus pandemic. The number of suicides in Japan increased in 2021.
