The Loneliness and Social Isolation in Mental Health is a research network that will bring together many different relative perspectives on this topic. It is funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), a body that brings together UK Research Councils in different fields. It is one of eight UKRI-funded researcher networks. It brings together researchers, health practitioners, charities, people with lived experience of mental health problems and loneliness, and other organisations to address important mental health research questions. Researchers include clinical researchers, psychologists, social scientists, service users, neuroscientists and specialists in the arts and in digital innovations. Sarah Carr is the lead for co-production in the Network.
