New research has revealed that more than three-quarters of men who live alone feel isolated while they’re working from home – and even men with a partner and children in the house are hit worst by lockdown loneliness.
The survey has found:
• 79 per cent of men who live alone feel isolated and two-fifths have experienced a decline in their mental health
• 39 per cent of men living with a partner and children feel isolated, and 31 per cent of women
• 42 per cent of workers have struggled with isolation since working from home
• Nearly three quarters (71 per cent) of all workers miss their colleagues
• 40 per cent of 18-30 year olds report that their mental health has deteriorated
• Only three-quarters of women who live alone take suitable breaks, compared to 90 per cent of men
