Coping with Isolation and Loneliness

February 9 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Nothing like a pandemic and living on a farm in rural Nova Scotia to challenge a society’s’ ability to feel socially connected. For many coping with isolation and social distancing can be trying as it is just something many of us have not had to do. It makes sense it is hard because a core pillar for mental health is social connections. Social connections are influenced by our ability to connect with others as well the quality of these connections at home, work and community. Isolation can be defined as barrier that has a negative impact on our ability to perceive we can be as socially connected with others as we want. There are many different potential kinds of barriers that can negatively impact how a person connects from financial, social isolation, psychological safety is but a few.
