Group interaction important to health

Published Dec 10th 2012

Recent research by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) has added to the evidence showing that interventions designed to improve health and wellbeing are far more effective when conducted in group settings. The findings have been combined with other evidence from around the world and published in a book called The Social Cure. One of the researchers on the project said that, “Whether we are talking about stress, depression, or recovery from stroke, a supportive group life plays a critical role in a person’s clinical path.” More information is available from ESRC here.
