Lift me up then disappoint me. The project sounds like a great initiative. " The GenWell Project... received $761,000 from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research to develop the Canadian Social Connection Guidelines, a set of concise, easy-to-use recommendations to help people build stronger social bonds." Now these guidelines aren't available yet, but that's OK, good work takes time.

It all felt scammy. There was nothing of actual value. So I don't know.
