We are delighted that Dr Sarah Knowles has been awarded funding to carry out one of the first studies in the UKRI Citizen Science Collaboration programme.
Youth LIVES (LIVed experience in Evidence Synthesis) will be a three-year project bringing participatory citizen science methods into evidence synthesis to tackle the global priority challenge of improving youth mental health. The project will work with young people to co-design priority questions and collaboratively develop and disseminate reviews.
The research will be a collaboration between the Cochrane Common Mental Disorders group (CCMD) in CRD, citizen science experts the Stockholm Environment Institute, Sophia Collins, youth participation network Leaders Unlocked, and the Mental Health Foundation.
