Take part in the BBC Loneliness Experiment

Claudia Hammond
An invitation from All in the Mind presenter, Claudia Hammond.

We all feel lonely at certain points in our lives, but for some people that loneliness becomes chronic.

To help us discover who feels lonely and what can be done to help them feel more connected, we'd like as many people as possible to take part in the BBC Loneliness Experiment.

We've been working with leading psychologists in the field of loneliness in a collaboration with Wellcome Collection to create this survey. We hope to answer some questions which haven't been researched before.

Whether or not you feel lonely at the moment, we'd love to hear from you.

If you can spare the time, we'd be very grateful, because the more people who take part, the better picture we can get of loneliness in society today and how to tackle it in the future.

Is loneliness affecting your health?

Claudia Hammond explains that loneliness can be bad for your physical and mental health.
