Volunteering in your community could benefit your health

Volunteers less likely to be depressed

Volunteering in your community could be a health benefit.

A new study shows people who volunteer have a lower risk of dying early.

These people are also less likely to be depressed and reports show that they are more satisfied with their life.

Researchers suggest that this is a physical benefit because these people get out of the house more often.

It also provides mental health benefits by having social interaction with others.
