"Connectedness and Mental Health" by Dr. Martin Paulus, in Collaboration with ResearchMatch and ADAA
On May 18th, 2021, Dr. Martin Paulus presented a free webinar on "Connectedness and Mental Health" during the pandemic in collaboration with ResearchMatch and the Anxiety & Depression Association of America (ADAA).
"Physical and mental health are closely related to how connected we are to others. Loneliness, that feeling of not being connected, is often associated with poorer health. Dr. Martin Paulus, M.D., Scientific Director and President of the Laureate Institute for Brain Research and Chair of the ADAA's Scientific Council will talk about how the brain is "wired for connections", and why the current pandemic may be influencing our mental health. He will also discuss ways to focus on "connectedness" as a way to improve mental health."
