Abstract

The ESRC Centre for Society and Mental Health will bring about significant advancements in our understanding of how social, economic and cultural transformations affect mental health.

Mental health is a priority for governments and policy makers, in areas ranging from economic productivity to community cohesion and individual wellbeing. It is also intrinsically social: the factors that promote mental health or lead to mental health problems lie in our societies, our schools, our workplaces, our communities, and in the nature of our contemporary social lives. The impacts of social contexts, inequalities, and experiences on mental health differ by social group and vary geographically. We are living through a period of rapid and far-reaching change, in our environments (physical, social, virtual), social organisation (including issues around urbanisation, cohesion, exclusion, marginalisation and disadvantage), technological change (and its impact on relationships and employment), and social policy in the contexts of education, work and welfare.

Yet we do not know enough about which dimensions of our social, economic, cultural and personal lives affect our mental health, how, or by what means they might be modified. As such, we do not have evidence-based policies to address these challenges and to understand the nature and role of particular social and economic stressors on mental health, nor an understanding of the individual and social factors that enhance resilience.

The Centre will bring together expertise across social science, epidemiology, psychiatry, neuroscience, patient and public involvement, and policy analysis, to ask: What are the consequences for mental health, positive and negative, of major contemporary social transformations? What social, economic and health policies can support improvements in individual and community resilience to mental health problems?

We will pose, respond to and answer these and other key questions through coordinated programmes of theoretically-informed, empirically-evidenced, interdisciplinary research. These will be defined and delivered in partnership with affected communities, mental health service users, government departments, local authorities, schools and colleges, community organisations, mental health charities, and social and economic policy makers. We will collaborate with leading research groups working on these issues in other countries, and with existing UKRI-funded research infrastructure. We will evaluate existing interventions, apply novel concepts, and develop innovative methods for understanding the relationship between mental health and social experiences.

The Centre will carry out programmes of research across three key areas where social, cultural and economic transformations have produced substantial challenges, and which could benefit from intervention: 1) rising mental health problems among young people; 2) increasingly unequal rates of mental health problems in disadvantaged communities; and 3) the negative effects on mental health of changes in the security of work and the provision of welfare. For each, we will seek to understand mental health trajectories (how problems develop over the life course), ecologies (how social and material environments influence outcomes), and vulnerabilities and resiliencies (why some individuals and groups in adverse social contexts experience mental health problems while others do not).

Our research will identify the factors that amplify or attenuate the impact of social transformation on mental health, and the social, economic and health policies that can support mental health in individuals and populations. We will train a new generation of genuinely interdisciplinary social scientists equipped with the knowledge, the skills and commitments to help governments, policy makers and communities, not just to better support those with mental health problems, but to create mentally healthy societies for the future.

Planned Impact

The Centre has the potential to have a major economic impact on the UK, where mental health problems cost c.£105 billion annually. These costs are largely indirect (unemployment, lost productivity, social welfare), plus substantial direct healthcare and non-medical costs. Research can reduce this burden if it helps to better understand the modifiable social processes that shape mental health, leading to improvements in the effectiveness (and cost-effectiveness) of socially-based preventive interventions. Social benefits include improved individual, community and organisational resilience, via a more fine-grained understanding of the relationship between mental health and our environments (physical, social, virtual), social organisation (including issues around urbanisation, cohesion, exclusion, marginalisation and disadvantage), technological change, and social policy in the contexts of education, work and welfare.

By focusing on the modifiable social factors, the Centre is inherently impact-oriented. Impacts are likely to be long-term, measured over years and decades, thereby ensuring a significant legacy from investment. Impacts will be instrumental, improving efficacy of policy proposals and service development. They will also be attitudinal, through heightened awareness of (and likelihood to seek support for and be more resilient to) the social factors that can lead to mental health problems, e.g. changing organisational cultures, and enhancing public dialogue around mental health, of utility to schools, youth groups, caregivers, parents, and community groups.

Such impact can only be achieved by working in partnership - as the Centre will, building on considerable momentum - with mental health service users, government departments, local authorities, schools and colleges, community organisations, mental health charities, and social and economic policy makers. We identify four key beneficiary groups:

YOUNG PEOPLE (YP): focusing initially on 11-18y/o's in 12 partner schools across South London (c.10,000YP, their parents, carers, and teachers), with the McPin Foundation, thereafter scaling-up nationally (to 25y/o's, transition to early adulthood; anticipated at 50+ schools c.40,000YP). Close, sustained relationships with initial groups, then broader engagement via youth mental health organisations nationally (e.g. Place 2 Be) using the Centre's materials for use by teachers, c.100,000+. Benefits to YP include increased awareness of mental health (trajectories, ecologies, vulnerabilities, resilience) and available support.

MARGINALISED COMMUNITIES: initially focusing within London and Manchester, with an estimated reach of c.500,000 people, and on groups experiencing multiple disadvantages. Thereafter extended through partnership with city-based initiatives (e.g. Thrive LDN, Thrive NYC). Benefits include improved recognition of the value of their experience and expertise in the research process (including priority-setting), increased trust, and benefits arising from recommendations made via the Centre for service and welfare provision.

MENTAL HEALTH SERVICE USERS: via our work with service user groups (e.g. NSUN), will benefit from improved understanding of the effects of social conditions on mental health problems, recommendations for changes to service provision, and focus of acute and ongoing care that re-orientate to social circumstances. Further benefit from the production of a Mental Health Yearbook to provide up-to-date, accessible information on research outputs and their relevance to care and mental health services.

NGOS, POLICYMAKERS AND SERVICE PROVIDERS: will benefit from improved understanding of the effects of social welfare and public service provision on mental health (e.g. the conditionality of welfare benefits), and from recommendations for actionable change in practice (e.g. NHS England National Clinical Director for Mental Health part of the Centre's Scientific Board).

By providing details of the measures and studies, the catalogue serves as a resource for researchers: 1) Identifying datasets that include mental health and wellbeing measures; 2) Planning harmonisation studies; and 3) Planning further data collection. The resource is also intended for researchers who may be less familiar with mental health or from other disciplines - demographers, economists, urbanist, linguists and others. To support these researchers, the Catalogue also provides information about additional training and support for conducting longitudinal mental health research The catalogue does: Provide a search engine for finding mental health and wellbeing measures collected in existing UK longitudinal studies Present detailed information about mental health and wellbeing measures, including items, response scales, informants and reporting period Highlight statistical properties of standard measures of mental health and wellbeing Cover longitudinal and cohort studies, as well as repeated cross-sectional studies Focus on UK studies and cohorts (for now!)

Results and Impact Digital Methodologies for Mental Health Workshop
November 25, 2-4pm, virtual

How can digital methodologies - using smartphone apps and wearable sensors - help us better understand the lived experience of mental health in context? This question will be at the heart of this small group discussion workshop in which we will explore how, or if, digital technologies can engage and map the lived experience of people living in challenging circumstances.
Some of these apps, for example, may ask a person to report on their mood, wellbeing and daily environment in regular intervals. These self-reports are often linked to GIS data which can identify exactly where a person is when they make their report - for instance are they near a busy road, in a crowded shopping area, or in a green space. Other digital technologies collect data passively, without direct user input, while the person goes about their everyday life. Such 'Fitbit' type monitors can measure step counts or even emotional arousal through skin sensors.
In this workshop we will,

• 1) explore the aspects of the physical and social environments that participants feel are most relevant to their mental health - for better or for worse. We will then discuss whether digital methodologies can help us in mapping those experiences across space and time with a view to getting a better 'ecosocial' understanding of mental health.

• 2) look at a set of different digital methodologies in more detail. Participants who have worked with digital methodologies will briefly report on the advantages and limitations they encountered (3-5mins). All participants are encouraged to download the "Urban Mind" app ahead of time and to bring their experience to the discussion.

• 3) discuss how digital methodologies can be made participatory and relevant to service users. And in parallel, what kind of vocabulary we need to interpret and integrate diverse digital data streams in an 'ecosocial' framework (e.g. photos, sound, memos, step count)?

In preparation: We would like all participants to download the "Urban Mind" app and try it out for a few days before we meet. It can be downloaded from Google Play or Apple store for free. More information online can be found here: https://www.urbanmind.info/. Those who have worked with digital methodologies, please prepare a 3-5 min lightening presentations on the advantages and limitations of the approach using a maximum of 1-2 slides.

It features descriptions of the studies and the measures of mental health and wellbeing they have collected, as well as information about statistical resources and training. The catalogue improves the visibility and accessibility of these measures, making it easier for researchers from across different disciplines to make use of the incredibly rich mental health data currently available in the UK's longitudinal studies.

Our new resource will be useful for researchers from across different disciplines and career stages. The Catalogue may be particularly useful for early career researchers utilising data that has already collected and researchers less familiar with the mental health field - but it may also hold some surprises for experienced mental health researchers!

Results and Impact The REACH Virtual Work Experience in Mental Health Research is a five-day programme for young people aged 14+ with an interest in psychology, mental health and/or research. Each day focuses on a different topic related to mental health research with a presentation from a researcher at the start of the day after which students are asked to complete tasks. Optional sessions are also made available, including psychology careers talks and skills-based workshops. The programme aims to provide an opportunity for young people to have access to work experience whilst in-person placements are unavailable due to COVID-19 restrictions. We also aim to increase mental health awareness and understanding of the REACH study amongst the cohort.

Description Webinar - Department of Global Health & Social Medicine: Discovering the depths of mental health data in UK longitudinal studies: The Catalogue of Mental Health Measures 
Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an activity, workshop or similar
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Geographic Reach National
Primary Audience Undergraduate students
Results and Impact We have developed a searchable catalogue to help people find information about existing measures of mental health and wellbeing in UK cohort and longitudinal studies. The Catalogue of Mental Health Measures compiles and organises information about mental health measures in over 30 (and counting!) UK cohort and longitudinal studies. It features descriptions of the studies and the measures of mental health and wellbeing they have collected, as well as information about statistical resources and training. The catalogue improves the visibility and accessibility of these measures, making it easier for researchers from across different disciplines to make use of the incredibly rich mental health data currently available in the UK's longitudinal studies.

Our new resource will be useful for researchers from across different disciplines and career stages. The Catalogue may be particularly useful for early career researchers utilising data that has already collected and researchers less familiar with the mental health field - but it may also hold some surprises for experienced mental health researchers!

This is an interactive session showing some of the features of the Catalogue. Bring your laptop, IPad of mobile phone so you can try it out!

Learning points
Delegates can expect to take away from this webinar:
- Appreciate the value of cohort and longitudinal studies for mental health and wellbeing research;
- Discover new data resources and mental health measures;
- Learn how to use the Catalogue of Mental Health Measures.
