CoRAY Research Evidence Synthesis: Round 1

In late 2020, we investigated what research evidence was telling us about the mental health and wellbeing of young people during the COVID-19 pandemic. We synthesised information collected by academics, charities, and public bodies during the first part of the pandemic. 

We shared the findings with the CoRay Young People’s Advisory Group in December 2020. You watch the presentation, review the slides, or download the full evidence synthesis below.

The findings of this evidence synthesis went on to underpin evidence-informed guidance and resources created by and for young people on how to support young people through and beyond the pandemic.

We are very grateful to the Medical Research Council and the Westminster Foundation for supporting this work.
