The Co-SPACE team are excited to announce the launch of their two-year follow-up survey. The two year follow-up was launched on 30th March 2022, marking exactly two years since the release of the first Co-SPACE survey.
The first Co-SPACE survey was released one week into the UK’s first national lockdown to track the mental health of parents, children and adolescents as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded. Parents, and later, adolescents, were invited to report on their mental health on a monthly basis between March 2020 and July 2021, allowing the Co-SPACE team to examine the mental health trajectories of families in the UK over a 16-month period. Reports are available here.
Thanks to the generous support of the UKRI and JSPS, the Co-SPACE project will follow-up with participating families about their mental health in March 2022, November 2022 and March 2023. This will help the researchers understand what the longitudinal impact of the COVID-19 pandemic might be on parents, children and adolescents, and whether there are specific groups that have been more impacted than others.
If you participated in any of the Co-SPACE surveys between March 2020 and July 2021, check your mailbox for an email inviting you to complete the two-year follow-up! For more information, check out our “About” page and our previous reports, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
