The Kailo Programme

The Kailo programme aims to help young people and their communities find local solutions for better mental health in the UK.

The Kailo Programme will develop, test and scale an evidence-informed framework that will support local partnerships to co-design strategies that address the underlying drivers of poor adolescent mental health. 

Anna Freud were tasked with creating two evidence briefings focusing on issues highlighted by young people and local groups in Newham and Northern Devon. The topics were access to employment in rural communities (Northern Devon) and access to out of school activities (Newham).
