The Well-being, Interventions and Strategies during Epidemics (WISE) study is taking place to find out how the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic has influenced the mental health and wellbeing of people living in Irish communities who are aged over 65 years old.

We hope to better understand their experiences, perspectives, and how the pandemic has changed their daily life.

Results from the study will help to inform best practices about how to support mental health and wellbeing of older people during public health crises and as we emerge from COVID-19.
