Many young people, however, do not participate or drop out of such studies, especially young people from disadvantaged or minority groups, which means that results do not represent all the young people in the UK.
Aim of the study - Involving Young People in Research
We will develop a tool, called a "Framework of Guiding Principles", that tells researchers how to study biology and mental health in young people. For example, how young people prefer to be approached about research, what would make them interested to stay
involved, what roles they would like to play in the research team, and what benefits they would like to see from taking part.
We will also ask parents and teachers for their perspectives, as they often make decisions for young people under 18 years.This new project puts young people at the centre of the research design, demonstrating a new way of conducting research.
