NIHR ARCs national webinar series: Mental health in our modern world

In this cross-ARC series of three webinars, we look at mental health in the context of some of the most topical themes of our times.

Here, in the second webinar of the series, we 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


We are the network of 15 NIHR Applied Research Collaborations (NIHR ARCs). Funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR), we are a research service close to the beating heart of health and social care. NIHR ARCs support applied health and care research across the country.
