LANTERN: Looked After Children's Mental Health Research Network
About the Research Network
Children and young people ‘looked after’ can face many more mental health and emotional well-being challenges in comparison to their peers. 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.
