The last year has been challenging for everyone. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on people’s mental health and well-being, causing social isolation and loneliness. Lockdown restrictions have taken over our daily lives, vulnerable people are having to shield and those that live alone or are working remotely are feeling isolated now more than ever. It’s imperative that we all stay connected not only with our own networks but community-based networks and resources, health care systems and technologies.
We have launched a new webpage to help tackle this - Mental health: social inclusion and isolation. It highlights some of our latest research and author insights around this topic. Take a look at the content of the page below:
- Free access to our articles and author videos/blogs
- Information about different routes to publication (books, journal special issues and open access)
- Emerald Work resources
- Mission led research - our four goals
Let’s work together and look at how we can combat the effects of isolation and loneliness during COVID-19 lockdowns! If you are interested in contributing to the discussion or simply want to discuss your research ideas - get in touch!
