Morning session: 10.00am – 12.30pm
This session will showcase the work from Phase 2 of the Public Mental Health Programme, which has been focused on evaluating promising approaches (activities, programmes, etc.) for mental health. This programme of work is divided into eight projects: five that explore public mental health in adults, and three projects which explore public mental health in children and young people:
Adult mental health projects
- Does co-locating public mental health interventions in community settings improve mental health and reduce health inequalities?
- Real life matter: A study of what, where, and how services in community spaces work for older adults.
- Evaluation of the health and financial impacts of co-located welfare services in primary care in times of austerity
- Using big data to understand public mental health interventions and inequalities
- Public perspectives on inequalities in public mental health
Children & young people mental health projects
- School culture and student mental health: a participatory action research study
- Secondary school support for the mental health of students in the COVID-19 era
- Creating a Health Research Network to improve young people’s mental health and well-being
There will be presentations on all eight projects co-facilitated by academic researchers and peer researchers who have worked together throughout this phase of the programme.

Both the morning and afternoon sessions will include a series of presentations. In the morning session, you will have the opportunity to ask questions after the presentations, in breakout rooms, and in the chat box on Zoom. Your question will then be read by a moderator and either responded to directly in the chat or read out loud and answered. In the afternoon session, presenters will be monitoring the chat and using it to respond directly to any questions.
Presentation slides used during the event will be read out loud. This will be through a mixture of live and pre-recorded presentations, which will also be made available to view on the SPHR website after the event.
