Research and training opportunities

The Wolfson Centre for Young People’s Mental Health will host its first annual Summer School in Youth Mental Health Research this year.   

The three-day course will take place online from Monday 18th July to Wednesday 20th July, run by the expert interdisciplinary team based at the Wolfson Centre for Young People’s Mental Health at Cardiff University.   

The aim of the programme is to give current and future researchers from both clinical and non-clinical backgrounds a grounding in youth mental health research. This will be focussed mainly on the wide-ranging work we do at the Wolfson Centre, and on understanding the causes of adolescent mental health problems that can inform new effective ways to offer practical help to young people.  

The summer school includes talks on a range of topics in youth mental health research methods and findings, drawing on the disciplines of epidemiology, genetics, neuroscience, and intervention development. The summer school also includes interactive workshops on topics including research career advice, the importance of involving the public in research, and how researchers can help ensure findings are translated into government policy.
