It can be really challenging to feel connected during times like this. Reaching out to those that may not have as many supports around and scheduling phone calls or video chats have made a really big difference. I have been using the Houseparty app to have video chats with multiple people at once and its been great!
You would need to download the app. Once you have created an account, you just add your friends (once they have accounts as well). Then, when you want to have a chat, you request that they join your room and they can pop in. You can have up to 8 people in one call. Has been working great for me and my family!
