Children & Young People's Wellbeing @ Exeter

Children & Young People's Wellbeing @ Exeter

We aim to advance research and understanding into the physical and mental wellbeing of Children and Young People (from prenatal to 25 years of age).

Our interdisciplinary approach includes psychological, psychiatric, social, cultural, physiological, and genetic research. We aim to connect investigators from intersecting fields, to promote the work being done at Exeter and to facilitate collaborative research with impact on policy and implementation.
