LONELINESS, ISOLATION & SOCIAL DISTANCING

Interconnected yet distinct, these three wellness topics all pertain to our ability to find support through others and ourselves.

Loneliness is a feeling of sadness or distress about being by yourself or feeling disconnected from the world around you. It may be felt more over a long period of time. It is also possible to feel lonely, even when surrounded by people.

Isolation is being separated from other people and your environment. Sometimes this occurs through decisions we make ourselves or because of circumstances such as doing a job that requires travel or relocation.

Social and physical distancing is deliberately increasing the physical space between people to avoid spreading illness.

We hope the artwork below inspires hope, optimism, and encouragement!

ISOLATED UNITY

CREATED BY SAMANTHA NIEVES

Public Student Announcement
.
When we isolate, we go within our space alone to find that imagination can be inspiring and empowering. We find that what is most personal can be most universal and that we are all still interconnected through shared emotions or planes of imagination.
