Social scientists have long observed that the social environment and inter-personal relationships exert substantive influences on health and health-related behaviors. In particular, the past decade has seen a growing interest in the how social networks influence health behaviors including: smoking, obesity, suicide, interpersonal violence, drug use, and communicable diseases and pathogens. For this Special Issue, Social Science & Medicine will assemble a collection of empirical, conceptual, and systematic review articles that will make novel contributions to advancing social science inquiry into how social networks affect health and mental health.
