The Child Growth Foundation wants to provide more psychological support for young people living with a growth condition.
As part of this ongoing work we have launched a project to find out more about young peoples’ experiences of mental health and living with an undergrowth condition.
We have teamed up with health psychologist Dr Lisa Hodges from Cognitiva Consultancy Ltd, whom the Child Growth Foundation have worked with before, to develop a questionnaire with a focus on undergrowth conditions.
The findings will be used to create a resource to help young people who are struggling with poor mental health.
Who should fill this in?
We are looking at the experiences and views of young people aged 11 to 25. There are a few questions for the parents/careers/guardians of young people and their views on young peoples’ experiences.
Anonymity & confidentiality
All answers will be kept completely anonymous (not identifiable) and confidential (private) and many people’s answers to each question will be combined, so no one will find out what each person has said. You may not even be able to spot your own answers.
Other benefits of taking part
You may find it helpful to write about your experiences. Writing about your experiences here is an opportunity to raise awareness and what you write may help another young person.
Where will my answers go? Will they be safe?
All your answers will be kept safe with the Child Growth Foundation and Cognitiva Consultancy and will only be seen by the team working on this project.
To receive a copy of the questionnaire and the supporting information pack including a Q&A for families, please contact Catriona at [email protected].
To express our thanks for taking part in this study, a £20 Love2Shop e-gift card will be provided to the first 20 young people who complete the questionnaire.
