Internet-based psychodynamic versus cognitive behaviour therapy for adolescents with depression: study protocol for a non-inferiority randomised controlled trial (the ERiCA study)Download the open access paper

Exploring harm in psychotherapy: perspectives of clinicians working with children and young peopleDownload the open access paper

This study explores clinicians’ perspectives on harm from talking therapies when working with children and young people. Authors: Castro Batic, B., & Hayes, D. (2022).
Problem severity and waiting times for young people accessing mental health servicesDownload the open access paper
Access to timely care is a quality standard underpinning many international healthcare models, and long waiting times for child and adolescent mental health services are often reported as a barrier to help-seeking. The aim of this study was to examine whether young people with more severe problems have shorter waiting times for mental health services. Authors: Edbrooke-Childs, J., Deighton, J. (2020).
School characteristics and children's mental health: a linked survey-administrative data studyRead the abstract
Children spend a large amount of time in schools, making schools an important context for mental health prevention and support. We examine how school composition and school climate, controlling for individual child-level characteristics, are associated with children's mental health difficulties (emotional and behavioural difficulties). Authors: Patalay, P., O'Neill, E., Deighton, J., & Fink., E. (2020).
Young people who meaningfully improve are more likely to mutually agree to end treatmentDownload the open access paper
Symptom improvement is often examined as an indicator of a good outcome of accessing mental health services. However, there is little evidence of whether symptom improvement is associated with other indicators of a good outcome, such as a mutual agreement to end treatment. The aim of this study was to examine whether young people accessing mental health services who meaningfully improved were more likely to mutually agree to end treatment.
