What do young people and professionals around the world think about active ingredients for preventing and supporting depression and anxiety?
CORC, in collaboration with Euro Youth Mental Health, WACIT and eight partner organisations around the world, worked together on a research project to better understand what helps young people aged 14-24 when they experience, and to help prevent anxiety and depression.
The main goal of the project was to review the list of ‘Active Ingredients’ of prevention, treatments and approaches brought together by the Wellcome Trust. In this video we share the findings of the project and our recommendations for future work on Active Ingredients.
00:27 What do we mean by 'Active Ingredients'?
03:14 What did we find out?
05:24 New Active Ingredients
06:57 Organising the new list of ingredients
09:02 What can we do next?
We also created a downloadable A3 summary, where you can find out more about the key findings of the project. Our aim for the next few months is to publish our results in open-access journals, wherever possible, to share the findings more widely.
We worked with peer researchers from Euro Youth Mental Health and young peer advisors from various countries, who shared their views and personal experiences of this project in the blogs below.
