We felt extremely luck to speak with Dr Maria Loades who has been leading pioneering research into the effect lockdowns have on young people’s mental health. Thank you Dr Maria Loades for taking the time to talk to us and including our young people in the conversation about the importance of mental health. It was incredibly insightful to see this research and have it explained to us as it’s developing. Thank you for treating our young people with the value they deserve.
