GET INVOLVED: Improving research to help children and young people with anxiety and depression

On Tuesday 11th August the AnDY Team held an informal event focusing on how we involve children and young people who have been affected by anxiety or depression and their parents in research.  The evening included fun, interactive activities for the whole family to get involved with and share their views.  The event provided the AnDY team with practical information on potential barriers to participation, what parents and young people would like research to focus on, and what it means to them.  The youngest children who attended also worked with members of the team to create a colourful story book based on their thoughts about managing worries. We will upload a copy of the story book to this site soon. We would like to thank the parents and young people who attended for their positive feedback and for helping make the event a great success!...
