The impact of universal, school based, interventions on help seeking in children and young people: a systematic literature reviewDownload the open access paper
Universal help-seeking interventions in schools to support young people’s mental health have been widely used, but we know little about their initial impact and longer term follow-up. This systematic literature review aims to explore the impact of these types of programmes across different help-seeking constructs. Authors: Hayes, D., Mansfield, R., Mason, C., Santos, J., Moore, A., Boehnke, J., Ashworth, E., Moltrecht, B., Humphrey, N., Stallard, P., Patalay, P., & Deighton, J. (2023).
Using flawed, uncertain, proximate and sparse (FUPS) data in the context of complexity: learning from the case of child mental healthDownload the open access paper
This paper presents an example of the use of a FUPS dataset in the complex system of child mental healthcare. The paper explores the use of this FUPS dataset to support meaningful dialogue between key stakeholders, including service providers, funders and users, in relation to outcomes of services. The term ‘FUPS’ is proposed to describe these flawed, uncertain, proximate and sparse datasets. Authors: Wolpert, M., Rutter, H. (2018).

Structure and connectivity of depressive symptom networks corresponding to early treatment responseDownload the open access paper
There are suggestions that denser network connectivity (i.e., the strength of associations between individual symptoms) may be a prognostic indicator of poor treatment response in depression. We sought to examine this aspect of depressive symptom networks in the context of early responses to treatment in adolescents. Authors: Patalay, P., McElroy, E., Wolpert, M., Napoleone, E. (2019).
The therapeutic alliance in psychotherapy for adolescent depression: differences between treatment types and change over timeRead the abstract
