9th June 2021: Addressing loneliness in emerging adulthood (16-25 years): 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, hosted an online workshop to on how to tackle loneliness and social isolation in 16-25 year olds.
The workshop aimed to bring together young people, carers, individuals from different disciplines and sectors to identify key research areas to tackle loneliness and social isolation in 16-25 year olds. We presented and discussed the findings of a survey that ran 25th March-31st May 2021 to identify what we still need to find out, what the key challenges are for this age group in relation to loneliness and mental health, and promising approaches to addressing loneliness in emerging adults that already exist. After the event attendees will be supported to form working groups and collaborate on grant proposals for funding opportunities in this area.
