In this podcast we speak to Dr. Gemma Knowles,
Research Associate of the Social Epidemiology Research Group at King's College, London, and part of the REACH Project
. REACH stands for Resilience, Ethnicity and Adolescent Mental Health.
REACH is a study of adolescent mental health based in inner-city London, working with a group of just over 4,000 young people providing information each year about their mental health.
Gemma discusses some of the key results, implications of the findings in terms of developing strategies for prevention and interventions, and translating research, such as REACH, into practice to help young people and their families.
