Transdisciplinary Research for the Improvement of Youth Mental Public Health (TRIUMPH) Network

Lead Research Organisation: University of Glasgow
Department Name: College of Medical, Veterinary &Life Sci

Abstract

Childhood and adolescence are recognised as key life stages that set the foundations for health in adulthood and for the future social and economic development of the societies young people live in. Yet, young people face extraordinary pressures on maintaining health in an ever-changing environment, driven by changes in technology, communications and the media that they are exposed to. This has coincided with an increasing prevalence of mental health problems, especially among girls.

The traditional sciences of psychology, psychiatry, and medicine often focus on understanding and solving health problems at the individual level, but many of the risk factors for poor mental health and wellbeing are driven by broader social and environmental factors and affected by the relationships we have, and the settings, neighbourhoods and communities we live within. A different approach is needed to find solutions to address these risk factors and improve mental health. It is important that this new approach takes young people themselves as the starting point to make sure that their voice is heard at every stage of the research process, including when we set research priorities, in co-designing interventions, running trials, and in dissemination. To achieve this, the Transdisciplinary Research for the Improvement of Youth Mental Public Health (TRIUMPH) Network will bring together young people, health practitioners, policy-makers and those working with voluntary organisations, with academics from across clinical, social sciences, arts and humanities, design, and computer sciences disciplines. We will work together to find new ways to improve mental health and wellbeing, especially among vulnerable and disadvantaged populations where need is greatest. We will target our efforts at the peer groups, social networks and education settings with strongest influence on health behaviours in adolescence.

The TRIUMPH Network will deliver a series of events and activities to focus our attention where mental health need is greatest. This will include workshops to understand the mental health problems facing young people, find possible solutions and take forward project ideas, and information exchange and community engagement events to share learning and increase the involvement of the groups and communities affected by youth mental health issues. Network funding will be used to support small research projects to seek and develop solutions to the mental health challenges that young people face and to prepare for larger funding applications to evaluate these. Young people will be invited, and supported, to take part in all of the activities of the Network. We will employ a Design Innovation approach using different visual methods and creative outputs to support engagement with young people from various backgrounds and to make the decision-making process more accessible. In employing a Research Associate with significant experience of participatory research with young people to lead on this work, we will ensure there is support in place for vulnerable young people who take part in the Network. The TRIUMPH Network will facilitate new research collaborations to strengthen the UK evidence base and, ultimately, to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people across the UK.

Planned Impact

Traditional approaches to understanding and solving young people's mental health problems have not yet been able to address the risk factors for poor mental health and wellbeing that are driven by broad social, behavioural, organisational, environmental and cultural factors. A transdisciplinary approach that takes young people themselves as the starting point, is needed to find solutions to address these risk factors and improve mental health. By bringing together young people, practitioners, policy-makers and multi-sectoral public and third sector partners, with academics from across clinical, social sciences, arts and humanities, design, and computer sciences disciplines, we will work collectively to find new ways to improve mental health and wellbeing, and in so doing provide significant benefit to all those affected by young people's mental health problems. Public mental health is a significant policy issue across the four nations of the UK and is frequently debated across the media and in public forums. As such, the Transdisciplinary Research for the Improvement of Youth Mental Public Health (TRIUMPH) Network will be of interest to a varied group of stakeholders from within and out with the traditional, academic mental health field, and the principal motivation of the Network is to engage widely and bring together varied interest groups. To ensure impactful benefit, Network membership will be open to anyone with an interest in young people's mental health and wellbeing and our efforts will be directly targeted at the following two stakeholder groups:

Young people: are the primary partner audience for the Network and their participation will be central to all of the Network activities. Engagement will be facilitated through two direct routes: i) the establishment of Youth Action Groups drawn from existing youth groups across the four nations of the UK, and ii) the use the Network infrastructure to 'reformat' DECIPHer's Advice Leading to Public Health Advancement (ALPHA) group as a national mental health engagement network in the context of the School Health Research Network (SHRN) in Wales, which will allow for us to gather comprehensive, broad, and inclusive perspectives of young people. They will benefit from facilitation of a rights based approach, direct participation, research literacy skills and self efficacy, alongside identification of research problems and potential solutions with ecological validity and that are more likely to be effective and relevant to their lives.

Practitioners, policy-makers and multi-sectoral public and third sector organisations: partnerships will be developed with cross UK, national, regional and local delivery stakeholders. These will be also cross multiple policy areas encompassing for example, health, education and social care and third sector organisations. In this way, the network will comprehensively span the policy/practice system for maximum impact. We will include organisations working with young people (e.g., Mental Health Foundation - from which two staff, Lee Knifton and Julie Cameron are co-investigators on the TRIUMPH Network, Young Minds, NSPCC, LGBT Youth Scotland, SAMH, Life Changes Trust, Young Scot, The Fostering Network, Association for Young People's Health); policy makers with a remit for child and adolescent (mental) health from across Westminster, the Scottish and Welsh Governments and the Northern Irish Assembly, representatives from each of the four nations' Departments of Health and Education; NHS boards and trusts; and other government bodies with a remit for public mental health (e.g., Public Health England, which has expressed support for the Network, NHS Health Scotland) or education (e.g., Education Scotland). They will benefit from new collaborative partnerships, an increase in evidence-based policy and practice, and an increased likelihood of interventions that are effective, scalable and sustainable.

Description Following a series of agenda-setting workshops, a report summarising key research priorities for youth public mental health was published. This report highlighted knowledge gaps and evidence needs in relation to the three thematic focus areas in TRIUMPH - schools and other educational settings, social relationships, and key groups (LGBTQ+ and care-experienced young people). Four plus-funded projects have now completed or are near to completion. New findings have been generated across a number of key TRIUMPH areas: developing online support for care-experienced young people; exploring mental health issues for BAME young people across the primary-secondary school transition; piloting a school-based mental health intervention delivered in collaboration with a local radio station; and investigating school-based training needs to support mental health among LGBTQ+ young people.
Exploitation Route The research priorities have already been used to inform development of four seed-funded projects across the UK, and has been shared widely to inform policy and practice, and support further co-production work with young people. The TRIUMPH team are working with the plus-funded projects to identify funding opportunities to take the work forward. Project outputs and dissemination materials are also being produced and will be widely shared across the UK via the TRIUMPH network and other means.

Impact In response to the growing number of young people who may find themselves struggling with their mental health during the coronavirus crisis, the Welsh Government developed a range of resources providing children and young people with information to understand the coronavirus pandemic, keep healthy, and support their mental health and wellbeing. The Mental Health Toolkit was designed to direct young people, aged 11 - 25, from the Hwb to a wide range of online resources that can support young people through the lockdown and beyond. It had six wellbeing categories, in each of them will be self-help websites, apps, helplines, and more that are here to support young peoples' mental health and wellbeing. Their target audience is the 11-25 age bracket, with some resources being applicable to all and some leaning towards one end or the other. The six resource categories are: Coronavirus and your wellbeing Keeping Healthy and Active Anxiety Low Mood Loss & Bereavement Crisis & Self-Harm. The resources that were selected are based on the digital self-help resources that are currently recommended for use by local authorities and health boards. Long term, the model will be iteratively updated to capture the needs of children and young people as the Coronavirus situation evolves. This ensures that the resources remain relevant and means that once the Coronavirus pandemic has passed, the toolkit can support young people's mental health in a more generalised capacity or focus in on other specific circumstances should the situation demand it. TRIUMPH Youth Advisory group members provided feedback and thoughts on the toolkit, to ensure that the resource is as relevant and useful to young people as it can be. Feedback was provided via a survey, as due to time constraints it was not possible to organise an online focus group; this also allowed members to feedback in their own time. The feedback helped shape the toolkit and enabled the Welsh Government to make changes that will make the toolkit more suitable and applicable for other young people.

Impact Jo Inchley was invited to attend 2 workshops organised by Public Health Scotland on 12th and 28th October as part of an expert consultation to inform development of a new set of mental health indicators for children and young people in Scotland. This was an update to the previous set published in 2011. The indicator set is used to monitor the state of mental health and the risk and protective factors for mental health of children and young people (aged from pre-birth to 17 years, at a national and local level) and inequalities in these. They help inform decision-making about priorities for action and resource allocation and are used to 1. create national and local reports on population mental health, 2. inform strategy, interventions and strategic planning, 3. identify contributions to mental health improvement, 4. create wider awareness of the determinants of wellbeing, 5. strengthen the link between the determinants of mental health and interventions, and 6. inform the development of other indicators for impact assessment.

PI Contribution I planned, co-ordinated and facilitated the weekend residential along with members of the TRIUMPH National Management Group. The weekend was the first meeting of TRIUMPH's Youth Advisory Group made up of 16 young people (aged 16-22) from across the UK. The residential stated on Thursday evening and ended after lunch on Saturday. The aim of this residential was to set the importance of young people's participation from the beginning of the network by meaningfully involving young people in discussions about the development of the network. The key objectives of this residential are: 1. Get to know each other and build a strong YAG team for working with TRIUMPH 2. Develop a clear understanding of the role of the YAG how the YAG will work with the NMG 3. Start working on a strategy for young people's wider involvement in the network 4. Develop a plan for the young people's section of the TRIUMPH website and how to take this forward
Collaborator Contribution The partners worked with us to recruit, support and communicate with YAG members. Each partner organisation allocated one support worker who attended the residential with the role of supporting the four young people from their organisation.
Impact The short film from the residential can be seen at the url above. There is also a report of the discussions that took place over the weekend and an analysis of the themes that emerged from these conversations. These themes will in turn feed into TRIUMPH's agenda setting workshops that will help to identify the network's funding priorities. YAG members also identified the importance of young people providing training for adults, and on the back of this YAG members provided a day of training for NMG members in September. Discussions from the weekend also led to a plan to develop an interactive password-protected web platform for YAG members to communicate with researchers and resulted in changes to the TRIUMPH public website.
