The Evidence Based Practice Unit (EBPU) is supporting the More than Mentors project, which is led by Community Links and funded by the Department of Health.

This 5 year innovative project offers young people accredited training in peer mentoring and then the opportunity to apply their mentoring skills in order to support other young people with their mental health. Through the programme the team hope to offer a preventative approach to mental health and emotional distress in young people.

EBPU’s role is to evaluate the impact of the programme on young people’s wellbeing, resilience and mental health.
