Did loneliness take a toll during COVID-19 lockdowns? | All Hail

Join Ali Rae in this first episode of ‘All Hail The Lockdown‘ – a 5 part series exploring the complexities of our global response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In episode 2, Ali explores loneliness, mental health and the coping mechanisms we’ve used to gain a sense of control during times of uncertainty.

She speaks with psychologist and neurologist Julianne Holt-Lunstad about the impact of loneliness on our physical health and sociologist Eric Klinenberg about why social solidarity, not just social distancing, keeps us healthy during lockdown.

She also connects with emergency psychologists Roberta Brivio in Italy and Cui Can in China, to discuss their roles in helping the public manage uncertainty, fear and isolation.
