The first episode of The Flip Side podcast, in collaboration with Kurious Arts, talks to experts about social connection in relation to mental wellbeing. In particular, we discuss Connecting People, which is designed to connect those experiencing social isolation with others.
The podcast explores how academia, therapeutic services, research and lived experience practitioners can come together to better understand the following questions: Why in 2020 are so many of us feeling isolated and alone? What can we do about this? And whose responsibility is it?
