The £35m UKRI research programme in Adolescence, Mental Health and the Developing Mind (AMHDM), is an integrated multi-disciplinary approach to better understand the developing adolescent mind, accelerate innovation in policy and practice, and generate evidence-based solutions for changing models of mental health provision and the education environment for adolescents.
Adolescence is a critical, poorly understood period in the life course, when the brain is highly sensitive to external influences, and a young person’s interaction with his/her social and cultural environment is also changing rapidly in the transition to adulthood. This programme has been established to help provide a better understanding of how genetic, physiological, psychological, social and cultural factors across development shape the adolescent mind, and how they interact to influence, both positively and negatively, lifelong mental health, educational attainment, identity, social relationships and behaviour.

You will also explore options for longer term sustainability of the programme or elements within it.
