As we all engage in social distancing to take care of one another and to do our part in decreasing the spread of COVID-19, feelings of loneliness can inevitably come up for all of us. Social activity is an important part of all our lives and is linked to positive mental health. We are, after all, social creatures, and relationships play a central role in our well-being. We recognize how difficult it can be to uphold this essential part of life when we are physically isolating from one another. With the “Social Belonging” weekly email blasts, we hope to provide a valuable resource for the Georgetown community to explore how to healthfully maintain social connection during this challenging time. A team of Georgetown clinicians will collaborate to bring you weekly recommendations, suggestions, and ideas for engaging with the people in your life and cultivating meaningful social interactions through virtual platforms. Check in with us every week to learn more about online book clubs, virtual game nights, Netflix movie marathons, and other ways of connecting with others remotely! Stay safe, healthy, and connected as we navigate this unprecedented time together. Please contact Dr. Engin Ontiveros at ee270@georgetown.edu to be added to this email list.
