Right People, Right Questions project – top 10 research priorities for young people’s mental health
The ‘Right People, Right Questions’ project seeks to discover the top 10 research priorities for young people’s mental health. As 1 in 10 young people have mental health issues, focusing on young people’s mental health in schools and colleges is key.
While it is important that more is spent on research, it is vital that limited resources are directed effectively to the questions that matter most to people. By getting together the most important questions about young people’s mental health, we can better direct these limited resources towards tackling the key questions.
With the national survey closing on the 10th of November, we want to hear from anyone who is concerned about young people’s mental health: whether young people themselves aged 11 – 25 with mental health issues, a parent or carer who is or has been concerned over their child’s emotional wellbeing, or a professional who works with young people in a clinical capacity or in other environments such as schools or youth clubs.
