What is the study about?
The Co-SPACE study and its partner studies will tell us how families are coping during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, and what parents can do to help support their children’s mental health.
Your responses will help us to find out how children, young people and their families are getting on, what is working for them, and what they are finding difficult so that we can understand how best to help.Find out more
