Youth Mental Health in School Settings

Abstract #15
Title: HeadStart: An evaluation framework for a multi-site, multi-layered intervention programme for adolescents in the UK
Presenter: Jessica Deighton (the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, England)
Co-Authors: Neil Humphrey, Tanya Lereya, Emily Stapley
Introduction: HeadStart is a national resilience programme being rolled out in 6 areas across England, which involves building local partnership models for mental health support foradolescents, which are tailored to local needs and embedded in local systems.   Each delivers multiple interventions across multiple settings through multiple agencies.  
Methods: This paper describes the mixed methods evaluation framework for HeadStart, focusing on 3 core elements:  1) A 7-year quantitative longitudinal study involving repeated measures of child self-reported mental health and well-being, and linkage to local and national data sources (including education and social care data).  This aspect includes comparisons with existing data sources using methods such as propensity score matching.  2) A corresponding longitudinal qualitative study of a subsample young people deemed eligible for HeadStart support. 3) A number of nested randomised controlled trials of individual interventions based on emerging best practice.  
Findings: Learning from initial piloting of the approach, and development and coproduction of the measurement framework are discussed.  Findings from early piloting and baseline data collection will also be reported. Implications for the evaluation of similarly complex interventions are provided.

Abstract #205
Title: Guatemalan youth in adverse contexts: Resilience processes underlying educational opportunities
 Tannia de Castaneda (Universidad del Valle de Guatemala, Guatemala)
This research aims to understand, from a transformative paradigm, at risk youth participating in a technical scholarship program designed to prevent violence. Studies with cultural relevance are imperative for the comprehension of complex resilience processes in Guatemala’s context.
Methods: A cyclical mixed method design is employed, integrating qualitative case study methodology, focus groups, in-depth interviews and visual methods to elicit narratives; as well as a quantitative methodology guided by the Resilience Scale for Adults RRC-ARM-28, adapted to Guatemala’s context.
Findings: This research seeks to listen to the youth in order to deepen our understanding of the complexity and adversity of their environment to better identify risks, promotive and protective factors. These are dynamics that influence their life before, during and after completion of the program.
