What is the purpose of this webinar?
This webinar focusses on children and young people’s (CYP) mental health at a population level, and will summarise the evolving evidence available on the impact of Covid-19. Whilst the Covid-19 pandemic appears to have moved into a different phase in the UK, there is much to be done to understand and address the mental health impacts, and the unintended consequences of our public health response for children and young people. Governments and other agencies must also plan for future pandemics, balancing risks, harms and benefits, and the differential impacts across society. Such decision making must be informed by the best possible evidence from research and practice, and our learning from Covid-19.
Drawing on the latest data from the Mental Health of Children and Young People in England surveys and other high-quality sources, the webinar will discuss the following questions:
- What do we know about the impact on children and young people’s mental health on a population level?
- What are the implications for future trends, and how might this impact on services?
- How can we be better prepared in future to support CYP mental health in the case of a pandemic?
