Coronavirus Research | Key Research Findings
The emerging evidence series is a collaboration between the Evidence Based Practice Unit (EBPU) and the Child Outcomes Research Consortium (CORC).
In our emerging evidence series, we searched for evidence published during the pandemic from around the world, to help us begin to answer three questions:
What are the key mental health challenges for children and young people during the coronavirus pandemic?
What are the key mental health challenges for disproportionately affected groups?
What might help children and young people to manage these challenges?
Our concluding issue (Issue 8) summarises what we have learned and sets out recommendations for supporting children and young people’s mental health as the pandemic continues and beyond.
Watch Dr Melissa Cortina introduce the series.
Between May 2020 and March 2021, the Emerging Evidence series has presented the evidence regarding the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on children and young people’s mental health as it has come to light.
