Mental Health Study

Daráine Murphy is a PhD student from the School of Psychology in University College Dublin. She is currently conducting a study which aims to investigate the mental health literacy of parents of young people (aged 10-19) and young people themselves. The results will be very important in helping to identify the kinds of information about mental health and help seeking that parents and young people might find useful. The study is funded by the Health Research Board and has received ethical approval from UCD Research Ethics Committee.

Daráine needs a very large sample in order to get meaningful results and is looking for your help. Here is a link to the study (https://bit.ly/PARSEEKstudy). The link for the study is for parents to complete and at the end they are given the option to consent to their adolescent child participating. If they agree they are then provided with a link to share with the adolescent or an option to give their child’s mobile number.

To coincide with the launch of the study we have also organised a free webinar series for parents and teachers. Here are the details:

Monday April 26th 7pm-8pm: “Promoting positive mental health in young people”. This talk will be given by Professor Eilis Hennessy, Developmental Psychologist from the School of Psychology University College Dublin. To watch the talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGI6yBE7BG0

Monday May 10th 7pm-8pm: “Managing school stress”. This talk will be provided by Dr Elizabeth Charles, Senior Educational Psychologist from NEPS (National Educational Psychology Service).

Monday May 17th 7pm-8pm: “How to talk to a young person about how they are feeling”. Panel Discussion with Clinical Psychologists Dr Tony Bates, Dr Charlotte Wilson (TCD) & Professor Gary Donohoe (NUIG). There will also be young people on the panel to give their perspective.

Monday May 24th 7pm-8pm: “Compassion approaches for supporting young people”. This talk will be given by Dr Ciara Mahon, Postdoctoral Research Fellow from the School of Psychology UCD.
