Host Patricia Wu and guest therapist Charles Walker discuss why friendships are important for adult mental well-being. They offer tips for making new connections and emphasize the importance of being intentional about the kinds of friendships you seek.

Friendships Fill Different Needs

Not everyone can be your everything. Consider what you want from a friendship – shared interests, intellectual stimulation, support – and seek out people who fit that role.

Be Intentional

Making friends takes effort. Be open to opportunities, and take the initiative to make a connection.

Quality Over Quantity

Focus on forming genuine bonds instead of just collecting acquaintances.
