Virtual Groups for Support and Connection During Coronavirus

The increasing calls to shelter in place are vital to prevent the spread of coronavirus around the world. However, for many of us, such unprecedented levels of isolation can lead to profound disconnection and loneliness. As more and more folks hunker down at home, maintaining that real-time connection with others has become all the more critical for our emotional health.

Live virtual events and get-togethers can provide a much-needed social boost during times when we're feeling detached and uncertain. So while many apps and companies offer pre-recorded videos, we wanted to find live-stream ways of connecting, too. Here are a few resources you can check out to Stay Active, Stay Mindful, Stay Engaged, Stay Supported, and Stay Grounded.
