In the second webinar of the series, NIHR ARCs explore: Mental health and social inclusion. Three short talks cover research looking at mental health in the context of ethnicity, migration and homelessness.

This webinar is chaired by Prof Emily Oliver who co-leads the Mental Health special interest group in ARC North East and North Cumbria and is a Professor of Behavioural Sciences at Newcastle University. Her research interests focus on the interplay between physical and mental health and motivation, with a particular focus on how interventions and policy approaches can support those facing varying forms of social exclusion.

Talks include:

  • NIHR ARC West Midlands' Prof Domenico Giacco on improving access and experience of care of people from minority ethnic groups
  • NIHR ARC Kent Surrey and Sussex's Patrick Nyikavaranda on his PhD project investigating care pathways in mental health for newcomer populations, specifically females from refugee, asylum seeker and forced migrant backgrounds
  • NIHR ARC North East and North Cumbria's Emma Adams on mental health in the context of homelessness and/or substance misuse. She has led co-produced research with homeless people around their experiences of accessing mental health support, particularly during COVID-19 lockdown
