Connecting in the Community event series

In the lead up to our second funding call on Interventions, which will open in the summer, we are running a series of events to identify the gaps, promising areas and research priorities in different approaches to reducing loneliness, social isolation and mental health problems, both in the general population and for people with exisiting mental health problems.

In our first two events held on 13th and 20th of May 2020, we partnered with the Mental Elf to explore how to improve social connection and mental health in the general population. You can see the videos of the talks on digital technology, built environment and community activiity approaches to addressing loneliness and social isolation and improving mental health from the first two webinars here and read the transcript of Professor Laura Vaughan's talk
