Dr Bill Howatt's Professional Bio

What people are saying about 'The Cure For Loneliness'

Dr. Bill Howatt is brilliant at explaining how our brain works and how we as human beings can unlock the mental traps that contribute to feelings of isolation and loneliness. This book is a must-read and a fantastic toolkit for anyone who wants to learn practical steps on how to deal with mental health barriers in order to increase our social connections and happiness.

Mario BarilOmbudsman for Mental Health and Employee Well-Being at Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada

A must-read for anyone who senses their foundation of close friends and family is shifting under their feet. In my advocacy work on mental health at the political level, I knew change was taking place in our society and that our homes and workplaces were becoming lonelier places. Dr. Bill Howatt’s book confirms this, but more importantly provides a pathway out of loneliness.

Dr. Bill Howatt offers useful, interesting exercises to assess your level of isolation and loneliness, as well as practical, impactful tips to get out of your mental trap.
