LANTERN: Looked After Children's Mental Health Research Network

As a group, they are at heightened risk of experiencing relational trauma, emotional, behavioural, and educational difficulties. Our research network works together to assist young people, and their carers, to better identify and support their emotional wellbeing and mental health needs.
