NIHR ARCs national webinar series: Mental health in our modern world

In this cross-ARC series of three webinars, we look at mental health in the context of some of the most topical themes of our times.

Here, in the third and final webinar of the series, we explore: Young people's mental health. Three short talks cover research looking at children and young people's mental health in the context of social media, parent-led CBT and gathering new research ideas from those with lived experience.

This webinar is chaired by ARC East of England's Prof Tamsin Ford, CBE, who is Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Cambridge. She is an internationally renowned Child Psychiatric Epidemiologist who researches the organisation, delivery and effectiveness of services and interventions for children and young people’s mental health.

Talks include:

  • NIHR ARC North Thames' Dr Ruth Plackett on the relationship between social media use and the mental health of young people
  • NIHR ARC East of England's Dr Brioney Gee on work helping to get evidence-based psychological interventions into schools and families to reduce inequalities in access and outcomes for mental health of children
  • NIHR ARC South West Peninsula's Dr Gretchen Bjornstadt on gathering ideas for new research questions from young people with experience of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), their parents and clinicians


We are the network of 15 NIHR Applied Research Collaborations (NIHR ARCs). Funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR), we are a research service close to the beating heart of health and social care. NIHR ARCs support applied health and care research across the country.
