How can research help to reduce the prevalence of mental health problems experienced by children and young people?
Professor Cathy Creswell and Emily Lloyd from the Department's of Psychiatry and Experimental Psychology received funding for a project to design and pilot workshops and resources to engage young people (aged 11-14 years) in critical thinking and debate around the potential for research to reduce the prevalence of mental health problems in children and young people.
Public Engagement at Community Events
Dr Susanna Murphy from the Department of Psychiatry received funding for a project to improve and expand upon the Psychopharmacology and Emotion Research (PERL) Groups' current library of public engagement resources, specifically developing interactive activities that will appeal to all ages. The new resources will be trialled at five local community festivals and public engagement events to gain feedback from participants.
