Developing digital tech to improve the mental health and wellbeing of vulnerable children, young people and their families

Our aim is to develop digital technologies which can improve the mental health and wellbeing of vulnerable children, young people and their families. With a particular focus on preventative mental health, we want to create digital tools which are accessible and useful to our service users, and scalable to a wider population. This means that we have a strong focus on working alongside children and young people, co-designing digital tools together and empowering them to drive our research agenda.
