APA Announces Research Findings on Loneliness During the Pandemic

The American Psychological Association (APA) shared the results of a study led by Johannes Gutenberg University–Mainz’s Mareike Ernst finding that “[p]eople around the world experienced an increase in loneliness during the COVID-19 pandemic, which, although small, could have implications for people’s long-term mental and physical health, longevity and well-being. …”

“The pandemic does appear to have increased loneliness,” says Ernst. “Given the small effect sizes, dire warnings about a ‘loneliness pandemic’ may be overblown. However, as loneliness constitutes a risk for premature mortality and mental and physical health, it should be closely monitored. We think that loneliness should be made a priority in large-scale research projects aimed at investigating the health outcomes of the pandemic.”

For more information, read the press release.
