Psychosocial Research and Communities
Keywords:community, psychosocial, psychosocial research, well-being, health
The importance of understanding the concepts of community, psychosocial research, and how community psychosocial research comes to exist, remains central to the impact these have on the health and well-being outcomes of communities and individuals. At the core, community psychosocial research must aim to holistically address, alleviate, and improve the psychological and social factors that negatively impact the health and well-being of communities and individuals. This editorial proposes six core outcomes of community psychosocial research, including the following: understanding the context of the community, exploring the community-level factors, highlighting disparities, formulating community-based interventions, engagement, and collaborative community research which should all be used to inform policy and practice that contribute to the enhancement of societal health and well-being outcomes.
