Headliners (UK) North East team have been recognised for our exceptional work in engaging young people during our CoRAY Voices podcast project.

The team were awarded a Runner Up award at the YPii DMH Awards 2022 which celebrates the involvement of young people in Digital Mental Health in an awards ceremony held on Friday 8th July 2022 at the University of Nottingham.

YPii DMH (Young People’s involvement in Digital Mental Health) are a special interest research group made up of young people and representatives from academia, industry, and healthcare.

Their aim is to increase opportunities for young people to be involved in digital mental health research through building networks and developing innovative ways of bringing young people together with those in research and development.

Following several successful events, they like to bring people together to recognise and reward the incredible work being done by groups across the United Kingdom to support and encourage young people’s involvement in digital mental health.

Our CoRAY Voices Project

Headliners (UK) worked with the Emerging Minds Network and a number of partners on the Co-RAY project to enable young people to develop resources to support young people’s mental health during COVID-19 (particularly 11 – 16 year olds). 

The CoRAY project team comprises the Emerging Minds Network working with the Triumph Network and supported by the wider UKRI funded Mental Health Networks along with our partners: The University of Reading, Swansea University, Young Minds, the Centre for Mental Health and the McPin Foundation, Headliners (UK) and Fully Focused Productions to support young people themselves to develop and share resources that will be helpful for other young people. We will also be helping to share existing evidence based resources.

The CoRay project partners are very grateful to the Medical Research Council and the Westminster Foundation for supporting this work.
