It brings together young people, health practitioners,
policy-makers and those working with voluntary organisations with academics

computer sciences disciplines.
ALPHA is one of four TRIUMPH Youth Partner organisations supporting the network. It helped recruit a diverse group of sixteen young people from across the UK to form the Youth Advisory Group (YAG). This group ensures that young people are meaningfully involved in TRIUMPH events, activities and research.
It was great to see ALPHA’s main objective put into practice: ensuring young people are heard and their opinions taken into account.’ Peter Gee
To define the research priorities for the TRIUMPH network, ALPHA set up an agenda-setting workshop on 12th November 2019 at Portland House, in Cardiff Bay. The workshop, launched by Kirsty Williams, minister for Education, brought together experts in the field of youth mental health across Wales.
ALPHA’s Peter Gee, who
organised the workshop, said: ‘The workshop provided a great opportunity for
people from diverse fields to share their expertise, plan the direction for
future network events and activities and provide scope for funding
opportunities and collaborations.
‘A particular highlight was
the collaboration between the youth advisory group and researchers. It was
great to see ALPHA’s main objective put into practice: ensuring young people
are heard and their opinions taken into account. It will be rewarding for them
to see how their ideas shape future projects.’
