Professor Alex Haslam from UQ’s School of Psychology will explain that remaining socially connected in a time of social distancing is more important than ever. Loneliness and isolation are linked to poor physical and mental health and studies have found that social disconnection poses a greater health threat than smoking, poor diet and lack of exercise.
