One in ten young people will experience a mental health problem.
This Children’s Mental Health Week (8-14 Feb) we are collaborating with the National Institute for Health Research to highlight how young people can take part in research.
Research can help us to understand the best ways to treat people with mental health problems and improve existing mental health treatments and services.
We run a joint project with the University of Manchester called the Psychosis Research Unit (PRU) to produce world-class research that will lead to new and innovative strategies for reducing the distress experienced by people with psychosis.
Professor Paul French, GMW’s Associate Director of Early Intervention services and Honorary Professor, and Dr Rory Byrne, postdoctoral researcher at PRU for User-led research, explain how children and young people can shape the way that mental health services and treatments will be delivered in the future.
