Over 89,000 people are currently participating in the study, completing weekly online surveys about their experiences and behaviours.
We will soon start recruiting additional participants for a qualitative interview study.
The results from this study are vital if we are to understand the effects of the virus and social isolation measures on individuals. They will help us to track trajectories of mental health and loneliness in the UK over the coming weeks, identify which groups are most at risk, and understand the effects of any potentially protective activities people could be engaging in. This will help to inform the advice that people are given about how to stay well at home.
