The Co-SPACE study tracked parents, children, and young people’s mental health between March 2020 and July 2021, and will follow-up with participating families at various points between March 2022 and March 2023. 

The Co-SPACE survey was created to collect data from parents/carers of children and young people aged 4-16 years and there was also an opportunity for young people aged 11-16 to report on themselves. The Co-SPYCE survey was for parents/carers of pre-school children aged 2-4 years. We also invited parents/carers and young people, as well as people who work with children and young people, to take part in an interview about their experiences during the pandemic.
