We Are Made to Connect (U.S. Surgeon General)

Following its advisory on the healing effects of social connection and community, in December of 2023, the United States Surgeon General launched a national connection challenge to encourage people to prioritize their relationships. The “5-for-5 Connection Challenge’ involves taking five actions that express gratitude to, offer support to, or ask for help from people over five days. These simple but powerful actions build and strengthen relationships and inspire others to incorporate connection as part of their daily lives.

With reflection prompts and vignettes throughout, the primer is a powerful tool for igniting a shared understanding and collective consciousness that opens us up to the possibilities for connection around us.
