REDUCING STUDENT SOCIAL ISOLATION
2018 to Present
Research evaluation of an adaptation for use with students of the Connecting People approach to reducing social isolation.
From 2018 to 2022 I worked on an adaptation of the Connecting People approach to helping students make social connections to improve their physical and mental wellbeing. You can read more about Connecting People on their website. Originally developed and evaluated in voluntary and statutory mental health services by Professor Martin Webber, I’ve adapted it for use with students, with promising research evaluation results. As of November 2022, I'm working on a publication with Martin, and I'll update this website with further information once we have published.
