A Youth Mental Health-themed conference will be held in the Student Village in University College Dublin on March 13th 2023.

The conference is funded by the YouLead doctoral program in Youth Mental Health Leadership which was established in 2018.

The consortium includes members from University of Galway, UCD, and RCSI, the Health Service Executive and JIGSAW, and is led by Prof. Gary Donohoe (University of Galway).

Findings from the various research projects that formed part of YouLead will be presented at the conference.
