Social Sciences Centre for Health and Well-being

Did you know that if you want to live a long and healthy life it may be as important to have social relationships as it is to stop smoking?

At the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences (BSS) we have novel perspectives on health and well-being. Why? Because we...

…. consider social relationships central to health and well-being.
…. study individual health in a broader context that integrates social and institutional domains
…. focus on both vulnerability and resilience in various health and well-being related contexts.
…. try to learn from those people who stay healthy and satisfied throughout their lives rather than only those who suffer from (age-related) disease
…. study which health and well-being interventions work best and why.
