CoRAY Evidence-Based Briefings
The CoRAY project launched in late 2020 to understand how young people’s mental health had been affected by the pandemic, and to support young people themselves to develop and share resources that would be helpful in response.
1) managing change & uncertainty
2) feeling bored, flat & unmotivated
3) feeling lonely, isolated & disconnected
4) encouraging young people to seek help if they are struggling with their mental health.
5) the need to support young people feeling anxious about social situations.
In collaboration with research and clinical experts, the CoRay team have produced briefings which provide evidence-informed guidance on how to support young people with these five key issues, during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
You can download and read the full briefings below. They are also available in summary form to use with young people.
