The COVID-19 pandemic has caused extensive disruption and challenges within the lives of young people. However, while there is good evidence to draw upon for advice and support, it is not always easily accessible for those who need it.
TRIUMPH are working with the Emerging Minds Network to support Co-RAY, a new project funded by the Medical Research Council and Westminster Foundation, that aims to support the mental health and wellbeing of young people aged 11–16 during the pandemic.
Over the next 18 months, the Co-RAY project aims to make sense of what research says about how the mental health of young people aged 11–16 years has been affected by the pandemic.
The project will focus on:
- Making sense of what research says about how the mental health of young people aged 11–16 years has been affected by the pandemic.
- Supporting young people themselves to develop and share resources that will be helpful for other young people (particularly those aged 11–16 years old).
