Nurturing healthy minds together
In 2019, the National Children’s Bureau (NCB) received funding from The National Lottery Community Fund to explore the published literature and policy developments around prioritising and supporting the emotional wellbeing and mental health of very young children – from conception to reception.
Severe MH difficulties among 17 year olds
This research, which is published in a briefing paper by the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) at the UCL Social Research Institute, working in partnership with the National Children's Bureau, provides evidence of widespread mental health difficulties among the UK’s Generation Z before the COVID-19 pandemic struck.
NCB worked with the Centre of Longitudinal Studies to develop policy recommendations based on the findings and our consultation with young people themselves.
