Participation in social leisure activities may benefit mental health particularly among individuals that lack social connectedness at work or school

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Workplace and study environments generally provide opportunities for social connectedness, however, not all individuals in such settings are equally well connected. It is possible that potential mental health benefits of participation in social leisure activities may be greater for individuals that lack social connectedness through a workplace or study environment. This study aims to examine if the association between social leisure activities and mental health is moderated by the degree of social connectedness at work/school.
