APA Says 'Improving Social Connection Is a Public Health Priority'

The American Psychological Association (APA) issued “a statement by Arthur C. Evans Jr., PhD, CEO of the American Psychological Association, on the recent advisory from Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, MD, MBA, designating loneliness as a public health priority.”

It says, in part, “The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in increased social isolation for many vulnerable populations, including older adults, who are most vulnerable to the virus, and children, who missed out on important opportunities while schools were closed. People from all walks of life, from educators to public health officials and even the media, need to consider actions that can help promote positive social interactions and healthy relationships to address this problem that affects millions of Americans daily.”

For more information, read the press release.
