Abstract

Researchers at the centre are co-investigators on a new UKRI covid award; Psychosocial effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The project aims to understand and mitigate the psychological and social impacts of COVID-19 and the lockdown on primary school children. The project will focus on the most vulnerable children identified as 'at risk' for mental health problems, by re-assessing a cohort now aged 5 to 10 years, to evaluate social and emotional impacts and how negative consequenses can be mitigated.
