Research Project into Loneliness After Brain Injury

Jeanette Morris is a Masters student at the University of Central Lancashire and is studying to be able to help people cope with the emotional and psychological difficulties of having health problems.  She has been a volunteer with people with brain injuries for over four years and is interested in finding out about what helps them recover and what doesn’t.

She is undertaking research to understand more about what it means to be lonely after you have had a brain injury.  Scientists know that in some cases the way we think and behave can sometimes make loneliness better or worse but we don’t know much about how this affects people with brain injuries.  The research hopes to find out more about this to add to our knowledge and health professionals can design things that will help in the future.

Can you help her with her research?
