International study on boredom
The occupation, mental health and boredom programme will
provide the focus of the first multi-centre, international research
study because the initial analysis of the scoping study to map
research activity related to occupation and mental health (SIPPS
project) identified 133 people interested in being involved in
RCOMH’s research programmes. Their interest is spread across the
programmes. However when asked which other research programmes they
are interested in the most frequently selected programme was the
occupation, mental health and boredom programme. This suggests that
boredom is an issue which crosses the other research programmes and

The BORES Project group
The BORES Project group are undertaking a SCoRe project as
part of their Bachelor degree; they want to understand the
experience of boredom across the lifespan. They are using
social networking to collect their data and will complete
their study in January 2013.
