The Nurture Network: Promoting Young People's Mental Health in a Digital World

Lead Research Organisation: University of Cambridge
Department Name: Faculty of Education

Abstract

Promoting improved understanding of how children's daily lives are influenced by the digital world that now surrounds them and how they experience family, peer and school life as a result represents a substantial challenge and opportunity relative to facilitating positive mental health and development for children and young people. Historically, researchers have emphasised the role of supportive parenting and positive school experiences (including peer relationships) as primary social environmental influences on children's mental health, with most interventions targeting family and school-based influences aimed at remediating poor mental health outcomes for children and young people. It is increasingly recognised that the digital environment constitutes a new dimension or common denominator to these traditional agencies of socialisation influence on children's mental health. Yet, little progress has been made in equipping parents, teachers and the professional agencies that work with families and schools with new knowledge that harnesses potential strengths while offering protection from substantial risks posed to children by the digital world. How do we equip parents, teachers, practitioners, policy makers and youth themselves with information, support and resources that promotes positive mental health in a contemporary (and future) digital age? Addressing this core challenge represents the primary objective of our multi-disciplinary e-Nurture network. While significant advances have been made in relation to highlighting and understanding the genetic and biological underpinnings of poor mental health and mental health disorders in recent years, it is recognised that the social environments children experience and interact with remain a substantial influence on their positive and negative mental health trajectories (even when genetic factors are considered). Three primary areas of social environmental influence on children's mental health have dominated past research and practice in this area. First, family socialisation processes, specifically parenting practices are recognised as a substantive influence on children's mental health. Second, peer influences are noted as an important influence on children's mental health. Third, school-based factors are recognised as a further influence on children's mental health and development. Increasingly, the digital environment is recognised as a factor that both infuses traditional agencies of socialisation for children and that can influence children directly. Policy makers have recently directed significant attention to the prevalence rates and support needs among children and young people who experience mental health problems. The digital environment and its potential for positive and negative influences on children's well-being, mental health and development has also received substantial research, policy and media attention. Building on this policy platform, the primary objectives of our network are to (1) explore how the digital environment has changed the ways in which children experience and interact with family, school and peer-based influences and what these changes mean for children's mental health, (2) identify how we can recognise and disentangle digital risks from opportunities when working with families, schools and professional agencies in developing intervention programmes to improve mental health outcomes for children and young people, and (3) identify how we effectively incorporate and disseminate this new knowledge to engage present and future practice models and the design and development of digital platforms and interventions aimed at promoting mental health and reducing negative mental health trajectories for young people. The network will engage a collaborative, cross sectoral approach to facilitating impacts by directly engaging academic, charity, industry, policy and front-line beneficiaries (e.g. families, parents, schools, teachers, children and young people).

Planned Impact

The core objective of the e-Nurture network is to engage a broad array of academic, practice, policy and other relevant stakeholders to promote greater direct and knowledge-led engagement with families, schools and peer-group engaged agencies to facilitate improved mental health outcomes for children and young people. While many research projects purport impacts, partnership and engagement in delivering the lessons of research to practice and policy contexts, few groupings actually set out to broker this partnership from the outset. Our network is broad in partnership scope and intentionally inclusive of contributors that span multiple disciplinary and practice domains. While all contributors have an interest in youth and mental health, specific areas of expertise offer a complement that joins professional boundaries in a way that a standard research project could not facilitate. Through structured collaboration across academic, practice, policy, youth-led community groups, PPI members, industry and charitable organisational domains, we will operate across disciplinary boundaries to advance a knowledge-led model that generates new impacts and that stimulates future research and further impact opportunities. We aim to put in place a strategy to ensure that partners and those working at the front line of practice and policy relating to family, school and peer influences on children are in a position to use new knowledge generated by our core and network plus activities. We will utilize the complementary skills and extensive track records of the network Leadership Team, Advisory Board and extensive Partner Network profile spanning academic, practice, policy, industry, charity, education, family and child/young person domains. This will allow us to develop a greater understanding of the positive and negative influences of the digital environment for children through their experiences of family, school, peer and wider social influences on their well-being and mental health. It will also help shape thinking about how best to harness the digital environment to facilitate effective interventions to prevent and treat mental disorders, working together with family, school and peer front-line practitioners, charities and agencies. The network will stimulate significant outreach and dissemination through its Leadership Team, Advisory Board and Partners. We bridge academic (world-leading researchers and practitioners), practice (e.g. ACAMH), charity (e.g. NSPCC, Barnardos), policy (e.g. Office of the Children's Commissioner; UK Government departments) and education sectors (e.g. Place2Be), engaging with major industry partners (e.g. Facebook, Instagram, Disney, BBC and others). This will allow us to promote previously under-explored knowledge-based implementation and impact synergies. Fundamentally, this will lead to greater knowledge and access to information, resources and supports that promote the role of families, schools and other agencies (e.g. peer-based advocacy groups) in helping to stimulate positive mental health outcomes and trajectories for children and young people. Several core groupings spanning academic, practice/policy domains, families/schools/charities, as well as future generations of researchers, practitioners and policy advocates will benefit from the products of this network, its partnerships and planned activities. This will be facilitated through targeted and integrated activities that will cut-across all areas of impact relevance and will be embedded in activities from the outset of the network. Academic knowledge exchange and impacts will be facilitated through regular meetings, webinars and network linked workshops, seminar and conference events, as well as submission of academic manuscripts, blogs and media engagement.

Description Substantial progress has been made in stimulating engagement from charities, 3rd sector and voluntary organisations in promoting primary objectives linked to the Nurture Network (eNurture). In addition multiple family, school, peer based advocacy agencies, UK and devolved nation Government departments have engaged with and participated in multiple eNurture events and engagement activities. We have also established an active youth panel, contributing to all phases of eNurture research and impact activities. This consists of a group of 25 independent Youth Panel representatives (up to age 18 years) and activities include Instagram takeovers and blog posts during national mental health campaigns such as Children's Mental Health Week and Safer Internet Day.

eNurture has active partnerships with 5 schools in the UK (primary and secondary levels, including devolved nation engagement) and the Republic of Ireland (based on a request to partner with eNurture in developing school guidance on youth mental health in response to Government policy initiatives). Regular in-person and online meetings take place with school partners, an example of an activity facilitated in the first phase of eNurture funding being: In December 2019 eNurture facilitated a School Council Seminar on the Impact of the Digital World on the Mental Health of Children and Young People at Ysgol Gynradd Rhiwbeina, Cardiff. Twenty-five pupils (age 8-10 years) took part in the seminar during which they were asked to consider the risks and opportunities connected to the digital world, and advice for adults concerning the digital world. As a result of the lively seminar the school is co-producing with eNurture a leaflet for parents, teachers and pupils outlining the key points and recommendations from their perspective.

Our first funding round (July 2019) generated proposals from multiple under-represented disciplines/groups - the 5 projects selected for funding are based on major new avenues of enquiry which will feed back into areas such as sociology, psychology, social work, education, media and communication, psychiatry, human-computer interaction, as well as the management of big data and complex data analytic methods, thus stimulating new academic research, practice and engagement opportunities. By way of example, an eNurture-funded project 'Prototyping TangToys (Tangible Toys to Improve Mental Health)' focuses on the development of smart devices to engage and transform the wellbeing of Children with Intellectual Disabilities (ID) who might be disadvantaged in the traditional digital environment. The project involves the co-design of a proof-of-concept prototype as a newly proposed intervention delivery mechanism for children and young adults with ID to promote positive mental wellbeing. Four of our first round plus fund projects have published papers from their research (10 publications so far with more in development), which is an immensely impressive achievement https://www.enurture.org.uk/research-articles. In our 2nd funding round, 7 projects were selected for funding in January 2021 and were invited to present their research at a showcase event in January 2022 (See below). A number of grant recipients have written blogs about how eNurture has helped to develop their research.

In addition to multiple events organised during the first two rounds of eNurture funding, eNurture organised two stakeholders webinars in September 2020 with contributions from Third Sector partners. The first webinar (14 Sept) focussed on digital based or enabled solutions to supporting and advising children and young people who have experienced or are a risk of mental health difficulties. The second webinar (21 Sept) focussed on positive ways of supporting and advising children and young people who have experienced or are a risk of mental health difficulties as a result of engaging with the digital world. Both webinars were targeted at academic researchers, practitioners and policy makers from a range of public, private and third sector organisations. Both webinars encouraged dialogue, stimulated debate and highlighted positive digital solutions for children and young people.

The third and final funding round was launched in January 2021 during a webinar showcasing the projects supported in the first two rounds. The application deadline is 31st March 2022. 17 expressions of interest were received and feedback sent to applicants to help develop their proposals.
Exploitation Route This is an ongoing and a particularly vibrant area of eNurture activity and future opportunity. The network has a focus on engaging academic and non- academic partnerships to promote eNurture objectives. This includes an emphasis on engaging with early career researchers and non-academic specialists (e.g. charity and other stakeholder partners, i.e. teachers, practitioners) to promote understanding of eNurture aligned objectives and positive youth mental health impacts.

A key component of all eNurture activities has been engagement with youth 'voices' across all phases of Network building and objectives delivery. Working with primary schools, secondary schools and independent youth contributors (across devolved nation communities) has promoted an immensely rich array of resources that we will build on and develop and make available through our website and other targeted dissemination activities.
