On Tuesday 12th November, the TRIUMPH network held our first Agenda Setting Day, hosted by DECIPHer in Cardiff, which saw 60 people come together to discuss current priorities for adolescent mental health. Over the next couple of months we will be holding Agenda Setting Days in each of the four nations of the UK. The aim of these events is to bring young people, practitioners, policy makers and academics together to discuss young people’s mental health and identify research priorities that will inform TRIUMPH’s research agenda and funding call.
The day saw lively discussion on existing research and practice related to youth public mental health on each of the three key TRIUMPH themes:
- Schools and other educational settings
- Social connections and relationships
- Key groups of young people (in particular LGBTQ+ young people and young people with experience of being in care)
