CoRAY Resources

Between 2020 and 2022 Emerging Minds collaborated with young people and partners on the CoRay project to develop and share evidence-based resources to support young people’s mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

All the resources below are based on evidence-informed guidance around 5 priority areas identified through evidence reviews and workshops involving young people, researchers, and clinicians on:

     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.

From podcasts and films to infographics and a comic, they have been designed with a range of purposes in mind, including posting on social media and starting conversations in classrooms. We’d love you to make use of them.
We are very grateful to the Medical Research Council and the Westminster Foundation for supporting this work.
