Co-SPACE: Impact on youth mental health

This survey aims to track children and young people’s mental health throughout the COVID-19 crisis. It also aims to identify what advice, support and help parents would find most useful. Parents/carers will be invited to complete an online longitudinal weekly questionnaire for a month, then fortnightly for a month, and then monthly until schools reopen.

The first survey will take about half an hour, and subsequent surveys about 15-20 minutes. Parents/carers will be asked to answer questions about family life and relationships, overall health and wellbeing, parenting, psychological symptoms and how they and their child are coping during the COVID-19 pandemic.

They are inviting teenagers (aged 13 – 18), and their parents/carers, to take part in a longitudinal online study. They will ask participants to complete a survey each week for about three months and then monthly for nine months. The first one takes about 20 minutes, and each follow up takes 10-15 minutes. There is also an optional task you can complete if you like.

Every participant (adolescents and their parents or carers) completing the surveys and optional tasks will have a chance to win a prize of an Amazon voucher.
