This page shares some of the latest published research papers and reports on loneliness and social isolation in mental health. We make no claims as to their quality and leave you to judge.

Resources for Early Career Researchers from across the 8 UKRI mental health networks are now available on the cross-network Mental Health Research Matters website, including funding tips and info on open science.

In November 2021 some of the Co-investigators of the Loneliness and Social Isolation in Mental Health Research Network (LSIMHRN) and Principal Investigators from some of the Plus Projects funded by LSIMHRN got together for an informal sharing of tips for getting funding. Here are the dos and don’ts that we came up with – we hope you find them useful.
