‘Control It’ – Being alone, together
In episode 2 of #AllHailTheLockdown Ali Rae 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.
#AllHailTheLockdown is a 5 part series exploring the complexities of our global response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
