Mental Health and Well-Being in Childhood and Adolescence

This three-year (2023 – 2025) project, funded by the Health Research Board examines the risk and protective factors for mental health and wellbeing in childhood and adolescence. Using data from Growing Up in Ireland, the research examines issues such as trajectories of mental health and wellbeing from childhood to adolescence, intergenerational persistence in mental health and wellbeing, access to treatment and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
