Where we live and sometimes "how" we live can negatively impact your health.  This article focuses on Rural Youth Suicide patterns.  That same sense of isolation and loneliness certainly can be present in a City or Suburban environment. In both of these places (depending on many factors), the opportunity to get to know your neighbors may never present itself.  Mixed use planning facilitates a true sense of community and belonging.  Even if this is only a superficial solution....
