Isolation and loneliness have become commonplace during the COVID-19 pandemic, but in fact, they’ve been widespread for years. And while we are used to thinking of health in two dimensions, the physical health of the body and the mental health of the mind, Kasley advocates we should include a third dimension of social health to include our relationships. In this talk, she will explore the science of how loneliness affects health and share practical tips for building supportive relationships and staying connected.
