Get Involved

At AnDY, we have a large number of ways for you to get involved with the work we do here. Each year we offer placement opportunities to Undergraduate and Master’s students studying at the University of Reading, as well as having a limited number of these opportunities available for external students. Master’s students also have the opportunity to undertake their empirical research project within AnDY. In addition to this, we have a number of PhD students working closely with our team, who conduct their research into various aspects of child and adolescent mental health. PhD opportunities are dependant on receiving research grants, and will be displayed here when they are available.

If you are one of our service-users, or the parent of someone using our service, we would love to get your feedback on your experience with the clinic. We hold regular PPI (Patient & Public Involvement) meetings to get feedback on different aspects of how the clinic is run. If you are a teenager and would like to find out more about PPI, please click here, or for parents who would like to find out more, please click here.
