About this Event

REACH (Resilience, Ethnicity and AdolesCent Mental Health) is investigating factors that affect mental health of young people from diverse backgrounds. Over 4000 adolescents from south London schools are taking part, providing detailed information, over time, about their mental health, personal and social circumstances, and experiences.

Over the past few months, REACH participants (now aged 14-18 years) have been providing important information about their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is helping us to understand the impact of the pandemic and prolonged social restrictions, including school closures, on the mental health of young people from diverse backgrounds.

This collaborative event, co-produced by our Young Person’s Advisory Group, will showcase key emerging findings from the study to date. We will also discuss the REACH engagement programme which runs alongside our research. Through interactive presentations, we aim to demonstrate the value of empowering and involving young people in social science research and public engagement.
