Research aims to shine a light on young people’s mental health issues
The BBC has reported on a new research centre which will aim to “shine a light” on why young people develop mental health problems.
The £10m Wolfson Centre at Cardiff University wants to develop new ways of reducing anxiety and depression.
The charitable Wolfson Foundation is investing £10m over the next five years and will bring together experts from different fields.
Cardiff University will work in partnership with Swansea University experts, the Welsh Government, NHS Wales, university health boards and schools across Wales.
In the UK, one in eight young people experience anxiety or depression – a rise of 50% compared to 20 years ago – and the vast majority go unrecognised, according to the team.
