Tackling young people’s mental illness

We're bringing together experts in the biological sciences and related fields to further discussions on the research priorities for young people’s mental health.

Some 75% of mental health conditions start before the age of 18, and can have lifelong impacts. We are committed to tackling this and we’re developing plans for a major new young people and mental illness research initiative later this year. 

To help us as we develop our programme, we’re gathering insight from across a range of scientific disciples. We've previously spoken to leading social scientists, and for the next two days we’re focusing on biological sciences. Our workshop will be exploring key opportunities for research to improve the prevention, treatment and care of young people’s mental health. 

This meeting follows policy discussions on the subject at our recent Annual Science Meeting earlier this year. To keep up to date with our developments, sign up for our newsletter today.
