What we do
We are a research network that aims to reduce the prevalence of mental health problems experienced by children and young people.
We are working across sectors and disciplines to tackle 4 research challenges. Our research challenges have been developed in partnership with young people, their families, practitioners and policy makers.
Preventing the onset of a diagnosable mental health condition, detecting signs of mental ill health early and preventing the escalation of need (from the World Health Organisation).
Increasing understanding and management of emotional and mental distress through programmes to change behaviours and attitudes (from the World Health Organisation).
Effective, early treatment and help for mental ill health: Accessible when children and young people need it.
We are determined to ensure that our work benefits children and young people with unmet needs.
