Dr Matthew J. Monnot, a researcher in the field of organizational behavior and development, describes how the current crisis offers an opportunity for scientists, leaders, and policy makers to understand what promotes psychological well-being both at home and at work. Yet It demands urgency for adaptation or change. In this particular crisis it demands adaptation on a global scale.
Dr Matthew J. Monnot, University of San Francisco, writes about social isolation and its increase with recent social lockdowns brought about by COVID-19. Social isolation and loneliness have similar mental health consequences: depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and suicidal ideation. Policy makers need to create social psychological protective measures in tandem with physically protective actions.
