What did we work on?
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.
What is the purpose of the study?
TRIUMPH (Transdisciplinary Research for the Improvement of Youth Mental Public Health) is one of eight new UKRI Mental Health Networks which launched on 1 Dec 2018. TRIUMPH works with young people, health practitioners, policy makers and voluntary organisations to find new ways to improve mental health and wellbeing, especially among disadvantaged populations.
What did we do?
In June 2019, ALPHA set up the first TRIUMPH residential. Read more about that on our blog.
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. A write-up of this is also on our blog.
