Abstract

The relationship between loneliness and health has become an important focus of scientific investigation and public policy. The launch of the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI)-funded Loneliness and Social Isolation in Mental Health research network this month will bring together researchers across a range of disciplines to collaborate in finding ways to reduce the burden of mental ill health by addressing loneliness and social isolation among young people, as well as marginalised groups across the life course. This Comment sets out the key research questions that need to be addressed to advance our understanding of what is described as an urgent public health priority.
