PSYcHE Improving Psychosocial Supports in Youth Mental Health


Research Area:

Mental Health

What is the research about?

PSYcHE is a research group that received funding from the Irish Health Research Board (HRB) to research how to improve psychosocial intervention in youth mental health in Ireland. We are based at the University of Galway. We think it’s important to hear the voice of young people when carrying out this research and are seeking young people aged 18-25 to join our existing youth advisory panel (YAP). This YAP will have the opportunity to work with national and international researchers on a number of different research projects e.g. digital mental health interventions.
