Loneliness During The Covid-19 Pandemic


This  COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenge to our social wellness. Many people are feeling lonely because they cannot interact with family members, friends, or even co-workers and this has affected their mental health. 

If you're thinking about somebody, text message them, call them, or even start up a video chat with them. This could go a long way for somebody because they could be struggling with depression, anxiety, or have increased substance use.

Let's stay safe and stay connected.
