Social Interaction, Mental Health and Wellbeing (SIMHW)

We are a group of researchers at Heriot-Watt University looking to improve social interaction, mental health and wellbeing for all. Some of our research focuses on particular groups like those with autism, anxiety and/or depression. This webpage will feature our research and will be updated as we publish papers and complete studies. Studies for which we are currently Recruiting Volunteers are on our Participants Required for Studies Page.

Projects in Progress or Projects completed are on our Projects Page.
