Webinar: Social isolation and loneliness during COVID-19: Evidence, policy and advocacy

The stress and isolation of living in a pandemic are taking their toll on everyone. It’s a message many mental health experts have been sending in recent weeks, as millions face not just the spread of a new and dangerous virus, but also the measures necessary to stem that spread, which can cut people off from friends, family, therapists, and others who could ordinarily support them through difficult times. 

This 90-minute event will provide an in-depth examination of the: scope of the problem, biological impacts of social isolation and loneliness, interventions and promising practices, and policy considerations.
