New Research which jointly Conducted by 3 UK universities has revealed that the pets can help to heal mental diseases. The researchers from the universities of Liverpool, Manchester, and Southampton suggest who conducted the study have suggested that pets provide benefits to those with mental health conditions. However, there has been no systematic review of the evidence related to the comprehensive role of companion animals and how pets might contribute to the work associated with managing a long-term mental health condition.
Researchers at the University of Liverpool in the UK systematically reviewed 17 international research papers, to identify the positive, negative and neutral impacts of pet ownership.
The study highlighted the ‘intensiveness’ of connectivity people with companion animals reported and the multi-faceted ways in which pets contributed to the work associated with managing a mental health condition, particularly in times of crisis.
The negative aspects of pet ownership were also highlighted, including the practical and emotional burden of pet ownership and the psychological impact that losing a pet has.
The findings have been published in BMC Psychiatry.
