The Department of Veterans Affairs offers a webinar in Surmounting Social Isolation & Loneliness: Mindfulness Meditation on October 21, 11am-12:30pm.
When we develop a cough or a fever, it’s likely a sign that something is not quite right with our physical health. But what about when we feel lonely? High-quality relationships are vital for our health and well-being and loneliness might be a sign that something is not quite right with our emotional health. This session explores the differences between social isolation and loneliness, the potential risks to our personal and relational health, and provides tips for how to effectively cope and manage.
