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).

Title Podcast: Mental health and the asylum process 
Description In this podcast episode we are asking, what is society's role in refugee and asylum-seeker mental health in the UK? What are the systems and the structures which affect their mental health, and their access to support? And importantly, how can we shift the narrative - to change the way we view and support refugees and asylum-seekers? We'll be hearing from Abigail Oyedele, Zara Asif and Hanna Kienzler who are also from the Centre for Society & Mental Health, and from Vidhi Bassi and Catriona Scott who work with LGBTQ+ refugees and asylum-seekers at Metro Charity. For more information about mental health during the asylum process, you can watch Changing Policy and Practice to Promote Sanctuary Seeker Mental Health, a short video by Sohail, on the CSMH YouTube channel: bit.ly/OSS7_SJ

Description Our ESRC Centre started in January 2020 and we are now in Year 3. We are on target to meet our stated objectives and have already produced several outputs reporting key findings. Here, we highlight 4 key sets of findings / achievements that relate to one of our primary objectives: To deliver programmes of interdisciplinary social research on key mental health challenges facing contemporary societies, identified and co-produced with affected communities, mental health service users, and stakeholders.

(1) Impacts of Covid-19

We have completed extensive research on the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on the mental health of young people, particularly in disadvantaged, marginalised, and vulnerable groups, including 3 mid-Covid-19 waves of data collection with our cohort of ~ 1,800 young people. In addition to survey data from all, we a sub-sample of around 50 young people completed video diaries related to their experiences of the pandemic and social restrictions over an eight-week period, producing in-depth data from the perspectives of young people. This work has been co-produced and conducted in full partnership with young people.

Three key findings:

• The negative effects of the pandemic on mental health were greatest among young people who reported financial hardship, poor housing, worse relationships and isolation, and disruption to routines.

• These challenges were cumulative, such that levels of mental distress increased as the number of negative effects increased.

• Keeping up with schooling and access to education was key sources of worry for young people, with concerns about exams, falling behind with schoolwork, and making the next step to further education being the most common concerns.

Findings to date are reported in a research article and a series of reports. Further analyses are ongoing and more findings will be reported. In addition, we have completed extensive engagement and consultations with young people, including a festival for young people, and other stakeholders to distil the implications of our findings into a set of policy proposals that have been widely disseminated in the form of 6 policy priorities.

(2) ESRC commissioned rapid review

We completed a ESRC commissioned rapid review synthesising findings from 50 papers on the impacts on mental health of social isolation among disadvantaged and vulnerable groups in the context of public health crises.

Key Findings:

Following periods of isolation either at an individual or community level in the context of public health crises, mental health problems are more common in vulnerable and disadvantaged groups. This impact was most prominent for people whose vulnerability was multifaceted for example those on a low income, in insecure employment, and belonging to a minority ethnic group.

(3) TIDES (Tackling Inequalities and Discrimination Experiences in Health Services)

TIDES comprises a series of projects that investigate how discrimination contributes to inequalities in health and health services. As part of this, in the Centre, we examined - in an in-depth study of 25 health professionals at all levels of seniority - how Covid-19 related inequalities experienced by healthcare professionals from racial and ethnic minority backgrounds mirror inequalities experienced in the wider health system.

Key Findings related to vaccinations:

• Vaccine concerns were expressed by different participants, irrespective of their racial or ethnic backgrounds, including those who identified as White British.

• In racial and ethnic minority staff vaccine concerns and hesitancy were influenced more by perceptions of institutional and structural discrimination.

(4) Mortality among people with mental health problems during Covid-19

In analyses of register data, led by our Cohort Platform lead, Jay Das-Munshi, we examined mortality among people with existing mental health problems during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Key Findings:

• Deaths from COVID-19 among those with learning disabilities were nine times higher than the general population during the first lockdown period, according to the study, and for those with eating disorders almost five times higher.

• For those with personality disorders and those with dementia, deaths from COVID-19 were about four times higher than the general population and more than three times higher in people with schizophrenia.

All our research is conducted in full partnership with people with lived experience, affected communities, and other relevant stakeholders. In this process, we have established new and consolidated existing partnerships, conducted extensive engagement activities, and produced many non-academic outputs. Examples of these are included in our narrative submission on Impact.

Work toward all our Centre objectives is ongoing.
Exploitation Route (1) By health services and health practitioners: e.g.'s (a) providers to engage with staff around vaccine uptake; (b) child and adolescent mental health services and practitioners, to inform engagement with young people affected by the Covid-19 pandemic; and (c) adult mental health services and practitioners, to inform work with adults with mental health problems particularly impact by the Covid-19 pandemic.

(2) Schools: e.g., to inform work with young people, provision of support services, and targeted in-school interventions for those most affected by the pandemic and those in disadvantaged, marginalised, and vulnerable groups

(3) Community organisations and services, both for young people and for adults with mental health problems: e.g., to inform work with those most affected by the pandemic

(4) Policy makers: e.g., to inform policy responses to mitigate the impacts of the Covid-19 on young people and adults with mental health problems, particular those in disadvantaged, marginalised, and vulnerable groups

Description Our ESRC Centre started in January 2020 and we are now in Year 3. Our work is now beginning to deliver notable impacts, particularly societal and public policy impacts. Here, we highlight 4 illustrative substantive outputs / impacts. These impacts relate to our objectives to shift narratives on mental health, to democratise research, and to influence policy debates related to mental health. 1) Our Sick Society Podcast Series We have delivered a high profile 10-episode podcast series (co-produced with partners) that has contributed to shaping discourse and debate on mental health in the context of Covid-19. This includes a series of 3 episodes developed, written, and produced by our REACH Young People Research Champions. In addition to the podcasts, we have produced - in parallel - a toolkit for producing podcasts for researchers and stakeholders. To date, episodes have been listened to ~ 4,000 times. https://www.kcl.ac.uk/csmh/news-and-media/podcasts 2) Democratising Research We have produced several outputs related to our objective to democratise research and increase research capacity by supporting non-academic organisations to conduct research that is meaningful to the communities they serve and that can inform change. A highlight example is our Future Learn course: Research Methods: A practical guide to Peer and Community Research. The course has been designed to make research more accessible to anyone who is interested in learning more about community research methods. It integrates concepts of diversity and inclusion into research methods and introduces participants to different ways of doing research. Those enrolled are encouraged to think critically about issues they may find in their own communities and how to approach them through research. To date, the course has been taken by ~ 1,500 participants. https://www.kcl.ac.uk/news/new-kings-online-course-provides-free-peer-and-community-research-training https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/research-methods-a-practical-guide-to-peer-and-community-research 3) Policy: Covid-19 We have produced several policy related outputs from our work on the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on mental health. These include: • A British Academy commissioned report on the long-term societal effects of Covid-19 for the Government Office for Science to inform deliberations on challenges and opportunities in different policy areas unearthed by the Covid-19 pandemic: https://www.kcl.ac.uk/news/new-report-explores-the-long-term-impacts-of-covid-19 • A ESRC commission rapid review on mental health of social isolation among disadvantaged and vulnerable groups in the context of public health crises https://www.kcl.ac.uk/news/mental-health-of-the-vulnerable-most-at-risk-from-social-isolation-in-covid19-pandemic https://esrc.ukri.org/files/news-events-and-publications/evidence-briefings/summary-impacts-of-social-isolation-among-disadvantaged-and-vulnerable-groups-during-public-health-crises/ • A policy brief, developed in following a conference and policy lab and in collaboration with the UKRI Emerging Minds Network, setting out proposals to mitigate the impacts of Covid-19 on the mental health of young people: https://www.kcl.ac.uk/news/briefing-calls-for-action-on-youth-mental-health-and-covid-19 https://www.kcl.ac.uk/csmh/assets/youth-mental-health-and-covid-19-2021-policy-lab-briefing-note.pdf • A 6 point set of priorities to support young people to thrive post-pandemic, developed from our research on the impacts of Covid-19 on young people and several consultation exercises including a Festival for Young People: https://www.kcl.ac.uk/csmh/assets/reach-covid/6-priorities-to-enable-young-people-to-thrive-post-pandemic-final.pdf https://www.kcl.ac.uk/news/reach-festival-for-young-people 4) Race Equality We contributed to report series on improving race equality in Wales. The Deputy Minister and Chief Whip asked the Wales Centre for Public Policy to undertake evidence reviews to inform the development of the Action Plan across six key policy areas, chosen as they were believed to have the largest impact on racial inequality: leadership and representation, health and social care, employment and income, education, housing and accommodation, and crime and justice. https://www.wcpp.org.uk/publication/improving-race-equality-in-wales/ Outputs from 3) and 4) have been widely disseminated. This includes targeted dissemination to - and subsequent discussions with - key relevant stakeholders. We have therefore used these outputs to advocate for policy change. We will track the impacts of these outputs over time.

Description Together to Transform: a mutual learning platform to develop a social paradigm for global mental health 
Organisation ActionAid
Country Global 
Sector Charity/Non Profit 
PI Contribution Together to Transform unites mental health practitioners, activists, caregivers, and people with lived experience within the framework of an online mutual-learning platform. The project's collaborators come, in part, from longstanding academic and non-academic partnerships in South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Ghana, Colombia, Palestine, Kosovo, India, Nepal, racially marginalised communities in the UK, and Canadian Indigenous communities. Together, we will work to advance the shift in Global Mental Health (GMH) towards a social paradigm by creating a "Global Learning Network." This platform will develop a common language for research and action on the social dimensions of mental health in equal partnership with our global community partners. It addresses two urgent, interrelated problems: (1) divergent notions of the "social" across disciplines and (2) power imbalances that persist between researchers and community partners, and between the global north and south. Our primary aim is to facilitate mutual learning across epistemic and power divides, while including historically excluded groups in the process of developing GMH knowledge and interventions. Our Global Learning Network will: Improve interdisciplinarity across epistemic divides by developing common concepts, measures, and actions to operationalize a "social" paradigm Promote mutual learning and power sharing through equitable dialogue between experts from the global north/south, academics/non-academics, qualitative/quantitative researchers Develop a collaborative funding proposal to apply the concepts and methods generated through these discussions in settings where our partners work, and ensure sustainability.
Collaborator Contribution Participation in monthly 2 hour workshops over 8 months Co-facilitation of the monthly workshops Scoping reviews on targeted topics emerging from the workshops
Impact Outcome 1: The Global Learning Network. The main outcome will be an online network that brings together academics across disciplinary divides with community actors in diverse global settings to problem-solve together. Developing a common language and relationship-building will lay the groundwork for long-term collaboration. Outcome 2: Concepts, measures and actions on key social factors. Each pod will articulate key constructs in relation to quantitative, qualitative and practice-based forms of knowledge to enable cross-disciplinary dialogue. They will also identify actions to influence these factors in the contexts where pod members work, and identify measurable indicators for future research. Outcome 3: Scoping reviews on missing literatures. Each pod can commission one scoping review on a "missing literature;" collectively chosen to lack representation in the current GMH discourse (including non-English literatures). The scoping reviews will be published on the Network website, as a blogpost, or in a peer-reviewed journal. Outcome 4: Collaborative grant proposal. We will produce a competitive grant proposal to operationalize the identified concepts, measures and action in further projects and make the Network sustainable. Outcome 5: Participatory facilitation guide: A particular focus of our activities will be to shift power from academics to communities and practitioners and away from interactions in which knowledge is assumed to flow the global north to the global south (broadly defined). Effective facilitation of interdisciplinary workshops will be key to this power sharing process. We will develop and iteratively refine a manual for facilitating such discussions that can be disseminated and re-used. By the end of the grant period we will be well-placed to collectively deliver future research projects in which communities' needs and priorities are centred. Outcome 6: Publications and seminars. We will publish at least two articles in peer-reviewed journals reflecting on lessons learned and our collective vision for a participatory approach to Global Mental Health. One article will be submitted to BMJ Global Health which has emphasised addressing power imbalances, and the other in Transcultural Psychiatry as part of a special issue reappraising GMH planned for 2022 (DB). We will also report on our process and findings in the CSMH seminar series.

Effective facilitation of interdisciplinary workshops will be key to this power sharing process. We will develop and iteratively refine a manual for facilitating such discussions that can be disseminated and re-used. By the end of the grant period we will be well-placed to collectively deliver future research projects in which communities' needs and priorities are centred. Outcome 6: Publications and seminars.

Description Together to Transform: a mutual learning platform to develop a social paradigm for global mental health 
Organisation London School of Economics and Political Science (University of London)
Country United Kingdom 
Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution Together to Transform unites mental health practitioners, activists, caregivers, and people with lived experience within the framework of an online mutual-learning platform. The project's collaborators come, in part, from longstanding academic and non-academic partnerships in South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Ghana, Colombia, Palestine, Kosovo, India, Nepal, racially marginalised communities in the UK, and Canadian Indigenous communities. Together, we will work to advance the shift in Global Mental Health (GMH) towards a social paradigm by creating a "Global Learning Network." This platform will develop a common language for research and action on the social dimensions of mental health in equal partnership with our global community partners. It addresses two urgent, interrelated problems: (1) divergent notions of the "social" across disciplines and (2) power imbalances that persist between researchers and community partners, and between the global north and south. Our primary aim is to facilitate mutual learning across epistemic and power divides, while including historically excluded groups in the process of developing GMH knowledge and interventions. Our Global Learning Network will: Improve interdisciplinarity across epistemic divides by developing common concepts, measures, and actions to operationalize a "social" paradigm Promote mutual learning and power sharing through equitable dialogue between experts from the global north/south, academics/non-academics, qualitative/quantitative researchers Develop a collaborative funding proposal to apply the concepts and methods generated through these discussions in settings where our partners work, and ensure sustainability.
Collaborator Contribution Participation in monthly 2 hour workshops over 8 months Co-facilitation of the monthly workshops Scoping reviews on targeted topics emerging from the workshops
Impact Outcome 1: The Global Learning Network. The main outcome will be an online network that brings together academics across disciplinary divides with community actors in diverse global settings to problem-solve together. Developing a common language and relationship-building will lay the groundwork for long-term collaboration. Outcome 2: Concepts, measures and actions on key social factors. Each pod will articulate key constructs in relation to quantitative, qualitative and practice-based forms of knowledge to enable cross-disciplinary dialogue. They will also identify actions to influence these factors in the contexts where pod members work, and identify measurable indicators for future research. Outcome 3: Scoping reviews on missing literatures. Each pod can commission one scoping review on a "missing literature;" collectively chosen to lack representation in the current GMH discourse (including non-English literatures). The scoping reviews will be published on the Network website, as a blogpost, or in a peer-reviewed journal. Outcome 4: Collaborative grant proposal. We will produce a competitive grant proposal to operationalize the identified concepts, measures and action in further projects and make the Network sustainable.

The project's collaborators come, in part, from longstanding academic and non-academic partnerships in South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Ghana, Colombia, Palestine, Kosovo, India, Nepal, racially marginalised communities in the UK, and Canadian Indigenous communities. Together, we will work to advance the shift in Global Mental Health (GMH) towards a social paradigm by creating a "Global Learning Network." This platform will develop a common language for research and action on the social dimensions of mental health in equal partnership with our global community partners. It addresses two urgent, interrelated problems: (1) divergent notions of the "social" across disciplines and (2) power imbalances that persist between researchers and community partners, and between the global north and south. Our primary aim is to facilitate mutual learning across epistemic and power divides, while including historically excluded groups in the process of developing GMH knowledge and interventions. Our Global Learning Network will: Improve interdisciplinarity across epistemic divides by developing common concepts, measures, and actions to operationalize a "social" paradigm Promote mutual learning and power sharing through equitable dialogue between experts from the global north/south, academics/non-academics, qualitative/quantitative researchers Develop a collaborative funding proposal to apply the concepts and methods generated through these discussions in settings where our partners work, and ensure sustainability.
Collaborator Contribution Participation in monthly 2 hour workshops over 8 months Co-facilitation of the monthly workshops Scoping reviews on targeted topics emerging from the workshops
Impact Outcome 1: The Global Learning Network. The main outcome will be an online network that brings together academics across disciplinary divides with community actors in diverse global settings to problem-solve together. Developing a common language and relationship-building will lay the groundwork for long-term collaboration. Outcome 2: Concepts, measures and actions on key social factors. Each pod will articulate key constructs in relation to quantitative, qualitative and practice-based forms of knowledge to enable cross-disciplinary dialogue. They will also identify actions to influence these factors in the contexts where pod members work, and identify measurable indicators for future research. Outcome 3: Scoping reviews on missing literatures. Each pod can commission one scoping review on a "missing literature;" collectively chosen to lack representation in the current GMH discourse (including non-English literatures). The scoping reviews will be published on the Network website, as a blogpost, or in a peer-reviewed journal. Outcome 4: Collaborative grant proposal. We will produce a competitive grant proposal to operationalize the identified concepts, measures and action in further projects and make the Network sustainable. Outcome 5: Participatory facilitation guide: A particular focus of our activities will be to shift power from academics to communities and practitioners and away from interactions in which knowledge is assumed to flow the global north to the global south (broadly defined). Effective facilitation of interdisciplinary workshops will be key to this power sharing process. We will develop and iteratively refine a manual for facilitating such discussions that can be disseminated and re-used. By the end of the grant period we will be well-placed to collectively deliver future research projects in which communities' needs and priorities are centred. Outcome 6: Publications and seminars. We will publish at least two articles in peer-reviewed journals reflecting on lessons learned and our collective vision for a participatory approach to Global Mental Health. One article will be submitted to BMJ Global Health which has emphasised addressing power imbalances, and the other in Transcultural Psychiatry as part of a special issue reappraising GMH planned for 2022 (DB). We will also report on our process and findings in the CSMH seminar series.

Title The Catalogue of Mental Health Measures 
Description The Catalogue of Mental Health Measures is designed to provide easy access to information about the mental health measures included in British cohort and longitudinal studies to maximise the uptake of existing data and facilitate mental health research. 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!) Point to data access policies for each study Signpost resources to support users in conducting longitudinal mental health research, including statistical courses and online training Connect users to a panel of experts in conducting mental health research (coming soon!)

Results and Impact Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, the concept of solidarity has been on everyone's lips. But while solidarity is held dear in political speeches and debates at all levels of politics, the prevailing impression is that political practice is often different.
At this sef: Policy Lunch, we discuss what solidarity means in concrete terms as a political concept guiding action in the international context. How can it be operationalised in global health cooperation? In particular, we would like to explore how the EU can contribute to institutionalising genuine solidarity in global health cooperation, based on the experience during the current pandemic.

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.

Tim Newton, Dean for Research Culture and Professor of Psychology as Applied to Dentistry, King's College London
Sonya Towers, Research Culture and Communities Specialist, Wellcome Trust
Clare Viney, Chief Executive Officer, The Careers Research and Advisory Centre

The event was for researchers, researcher developers and professional colleagues in research to have a conversation that examines the relationship between mental health and the experiences of researchers at work.

The culture in which researchers work can have profound effects on their mental health, and the mental health of researchers can influence how they operate at work, relate to colleagues and otherwise form part of that same culture. This is not necessarily a case of chicken and egg, but this simple statement highlights the reality that mental health and workplace culture are two elements of researcher wellbeing that co-exist and by necessity inform one another. This, in turn, lays a challenge at the doors of those directing policy within institutions and across the sector more broadly. The voices of researchers themselves need to be heard and those working to improve culture and mental health cannot afford to ignore the interconnections between these elements.

Annie's involvement in the panel provided an opportunity to promote the research of the ESRC CSMH on the impact of precarious working on mental health and to influence the approach taken by King's to address these challenges.

Description Presentation - Quarterly funders' meeting: Discovering the depths of mental health data in UK longitudinal studies: The Catalogue of Mental Health Measures 
Form Of Engagement Activity A formal working group, expert panel or dialogue
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Geographic Reach National
Primary Audience Other audiences
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!

Geographic Reach National
Primary Audience Other audiences
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.
