Children and Young People Theme

The Children and Young People's Theme (CYP) undertakes a range of projects that aim to improve young people’s mental health and promoting healthy behaviours. We specifically focus on early intervention, disruptive behaviour problems and obesity.

The theme is led by Professor Chris Hollis. For more information on the Children and Young People's theme and its work, please contact Programme Manager John Taylor.

Within CLAHRC-NDL there are four CYP studies:
