Is technology causing or curing loneliness?

Did video chat distance people emotionally as well as physically when it replaced the conference room, or did it provide a social lifeline through months of mandatory distancing? 

The connection between frequent social media use and feelings of social isolation has been widely reported. But at the same time, a multitude of apps are providing a path to learning, connection, and socialising. On the one hand, it’s compounding mental health issues; in other forms, it’s teaching mindfulness, meditation, and providing counselling lifelines. 

Mental health and technology have a complicated relationship. But here, we speak to experts to explore some of the ways that businesses can both reduce the stressors that technology can bring – and highlight the times when technology offers the access and solution that many could be looking for.
