Within this project, commissioned by the Wellcome Trust, CORC, in collaboration with Euro Youth Mental HealthWACIT and eight partner organisations around the world, worked together on a research project to better understand what helps young people aged 14-24 when they experience, and to help prevent anxiety and depression.

The main goal of the project was to review the list of ‘Active Ingredients’ of prevention, treatments and approaches brought together by the Wellcome Trust. You can find out more about this here.

By actively involving young people through a participatory action research approach, their lived experience expertise was recognised and embedded throughout the project. Promoting shared decision-making in research and generates meaningful and diverse insights.

This brief case study highlights the young people participation as peer advisors, and how this was helpful for the work:
