Roundtable discussion on improving youth mental health with the Canadian Minister of Health
At national level we work with the Department of Health & Social Care, Public Health England, NHS England and other government and health bodies.
We have strong relationships with many of the Royal Colleges including the Royal College of General Practitioners, the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health and the Royal College of Physicians.
Our research strand links us with Imperial College London, where two of our staff have associate positions, University College London, the Institute of Child Health, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Queen Mary University of London, University of Hertfordshire and the University of Bedfordshire. We also work jointly on specific projects with think tanks such as the Nuffield Trust, and we connected to a number of academic networks relevant to our work.
We have close partnerships with the voluntary sector including organisations such as Youth Access, StreetGames, Redthread, The Well Centre, Research in Practice, National Children’s Bureau, the Anna Freud Centre and Brook.
Our funders also include a number of charitable trusts and foundations including the Health Foundation, BUPA UK Foundation, Halley Stewart Trust, Balcombe Charitable Trust and the Nuffield Foundation, as well as academic funders such as NIHR.
Through our projects we have links with many other youth health organisations and health service providers around the country.
AYPH is represented on a range of committees and advisory groups, including the World Health Organisation’s new GAMA (Global Action for Measurement of Adolescent health) Advisory Group. We provide the secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group on Young People’s Health.
