So what do we know about social connection and young people’s mental health?
About this webinar
Monday 17 October 2022
The "So What?" seminar series has been developed by the Applied Research and Evaluation Division here at the Anna Freud Centre. It aims to build the bridge between evidence and practice in child mental health by asking "So what does this mean?" in response to research findings, project outcomes, and the work of our collaborators.
In this webinar, we will discuss the importance of social connections for young people as they enter adolescence, exploring the relationship between social connections and mental health and wellbeing for young people. We will be drawing on learning from a variety of projects from the Evidence Based Practice Unit, a partnership of the Anna Freud Centre and UCL. This will include learning from HeadStart, the Child Policy Research Unit and other programmes.
The webinar will start with a presentation, followed by a panel discussion with an audience Q&A. The panel will be made up of our main speakers, project partners, a lived experience expert and a practitioner.
