Addressing loneliness in emerging adulthood
09 June 2021, 2:00 pm–4:00 pm
Addressing loneliness in emerging adulthood: What do we know and what do we need to know? Online workshop 2-4pm on 9th June 2021.
The Loneliness & Social Isolation in Mental Health Research Network (LSIMHRN) and the NIHR School for Public Health Research (SPHR) public mental health programme, in collaboration with TRIUMPH, Emerging Minds and SMaRteN, are hosting an online workshop to share the findings of a survey looking at identifying how to tackle loneliness and social isolation in 16-25 year olds.
The workshop aims to bring together young people, carers, individuals from different disciplines and sectors to discuss the survey findings and identify key research areas to tackle loneliness and social isolation in 16-25 year olds. The event will provide an opportunity for those attending to form working groups and collaborate on grant proposals for funding opportunities in this area.
The workshop will include short talks and small group discussions based around the key topics identified through the survey.
The programme for the workshop will be published closer to the event date.
Who can attend the workshop?
The workshop is aimed at researchers with an interest in mental health and specifically loneliness and social isolation in emerging adults, practitioners, charities, those working in mental health services, policy makers and people with lived experience. The workshop aims to (i) refine the outcomes of the survey to identify the key research priorities, (ii) bring together different disciplines and sectors, along with people with lived experience, to seed collaborative working groups that will go on to develop grant proposals together.
