    Abstract

    Many individuals shielding from Covid‐19 because of extreme clinical vulnerability are reporting worsening mental health (ONS, 2020) and may need assistance to change their shielding behaviour to regain their social connections. Isolation is strongly linked to depression and anxiety, which provoke further social withdrawal (Santini et al, 2020), creating a downward spiral of low mood, lack of motivation, anxiety, and further isolation through avoidance behaviour.
