Loneliness in later life

Posted on 18 October 2016

Mental health researchers from the Department of Health Sciences have contributed an article to an NHS magazine about loneliness in later life.

Nicole Valtorta, a research fellow in Public Health, and Professor Simon Gilbody, of the Mental Health and Addiction Research Group, have contributed an article to Innovage Magazine, which promotes excellence in health and eldercare.

The article, on "Loneliness in later life: opportunities and challenges for intervention" looks at what can be done to alleviate loneliness and isolation on older individuals. 

Innovage magazine, which is produced by Trustech, an NHS organisation, is free to view and subscribe to.
