My Voice Matters - mental health research planning

On Thursday 8 February 2024, two young people led an event with research teams from Pennine CareManchester Metropolitan UniversityMade by Mortals42nd StreetMindset Revolution and the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration Greater Manchester (ARC-GM), to plan better ways to engage young people in mental health research.

Animations to answer the question 'what would put young people off mental health research'.pngThe event captured feedback on three key questions:

  • What would put off young people attending events to talk about mental health research? 
  • What should future events about young people's mental health research look like? 
  • What should researchers do differently to engage young people in conversations about research?

This feedback has been illustrated by artist Tom Bailey. Read more about the event and see the feedback.
