Living through a pandemic in 2020-2021 is having an impact that’s profound and universal, leading to a significant awareness of the “hidden epidemic” of social isolation and loneliness. Not so hidden anymore, the issue is resulting in a surge of relevant resources.

This course will reflect on how isolation affects our lives—physically, emotionally and mentally. We will share research, resources and outreach initiatives, provide coping strategies and promote social connection. Join us in this interactive, supportive forum, with Q and A, that will spread hope and lead participants to make a difference.
