'An innovative, evidence-based approach to address social isolation, trauma and aid recovery'.
Our Main Effort in year one was to set up therapeutic game projects for people experiencing homelessness,
and military veterans. Both of these groups have an excess risk of mental ill-health, psychological trauma and social isolation.
In Year Two, we will be looking expanding int new areas including working with adults and young people living with neurodivergence, and people with Common Mental Health Disorders such as depression and General Anxiety Disorder.
Future projects will also include people in recovery from brain injury, early dementia, and people living in prison populations.
Social isolation, with or without loneliness, can have as large effect on mortality risk as smoking, obesity, sedentary lifestyle and high blood pressure.

Such as prison populations, people experiencing homelessness and those with special educational needs
