The mental health of young people is much discussed and a great cause for concern for schools and settings - 50% of mental health issues start before the age of 14, but only 30% of young people who need help get access to it. There is a growing body of academic research which demonstrates the effectiveness of attachment aware approaches in schools and other settings which work with young people. Several Higher Education Institutions have formed a network (The ARC HE & ITT Network) who seek to support ARC in a number of ways. Members of ARC are also able to access this network for support in their action research.
If you are interested in starting your own piece of research or want to be part of the ARC HE & ITT Network, please contact the team who would be more than happy to discuss your needs further.
