Your social relations as the key to happiness


About the research

The coronalockdown made us realize more than ever how important contact with family, friends and acquaintances is for our well-being. Unfortunately, people with disabilities often rely on a smaller social network. Evy Meys (KU Leuven) is therefore investigating how the network of people with disabilities can be strengthened.
