“The biggest challenge for me is going to be the lack of human interaction.”

With increasing numbers of people being in isolation, COVID-19 is not the only health threat we should be worried about. It’s important we regularly check-in with ourselves and take care of our mental health, too.

In fact, loneliness can become a serious mental health threat, which is why we decided to ask our colleagues and friends to join our Seenit project to share tips and tricks on how to combat loneliness during Covid-19 isolation.
