Managing emotions during COVID-19: The experiences of 12-25 year olds

posted May 16, 2020, 2:41 AM by MHRUK Administrator

The research, developed by King’s College London, and promoted by the BBC, will focus on young peoples’ emotions and well-being during the pandemic. These data allow young people themselves to tell us what is most helpful in managing the upsurge in stress and the uncertainty of how the situation will resolve. In turn, these findings can help inform future interventions for mental health disorders in young people beyond this pandemic.

Young people would be expected to answer some questions (around 20 minutes) every two weeks for 16 weeks. They will be given a £10 voucher for completing the survey 4 times and £20 for doing it 8 times. 

The survey can be found at: https://kcliop.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_etGSQ2B8fRS44a9

This research is being funded by the Rosetrees Trust, and has received ethical clearance. As such, all participants will be asked for informed consent, with additional parental consent required for those under 16 years.
