Have your say: public consultation on young people’s mental health to inform research

Researchers from several universities in Scotland want to gather views to inform new research examining mental health in young people.

The research team are currently developing their research plans and applying for funding, and are interested to hear from:

  • Older children and teenagers (11+) who have a wide range of mental health experiences – those who feel resilient or upbeat, and those who feel unwell or concerned.
  • Parents / carers of teenagers and older children
  • Teachers and other education professionals, including practitioners from social care or health who are interested in this issue.

The anonymous survey has 8 questions and should take about five minutes. The survey is not a piece of research itself, and the information will be used to better understand people’s views and help develop new research into the mental health of young people.

If you’re under 16 years old, you might want to complete this survey with a parent or trusted adult nearby in case you have questions.

If you have any questions you can contact the author of the survey: sue.fletcher-watson@ed.ac.uk
