  • Observational studies examining how mental health influences the effectiveness of vaccines; the healing of chronic wounds; vulnerability to viral infections.
  • Experimental studies (eg trials) that focus on the development of behavioural interventions to improve health outcomes.
  • Big data studies that use existing datasets to better understand the interface between physical and mental health.
