Mental Health Project with King's College


Harris Boys' Academy East Dulwich is collaborating with researchers from King’s College London in 2017 on a new research study of mental health among school students in south London. The study is called REACH (which stands for Resilience, Ethnicity, and AdolesCent Mental Health).

"We completed the first stage of data collection at HBAED before half term, and I just wanted to get in touch to say thank you to you, your colleagues, and your students for the fantastic experience we’ve had so far," said Craig Morgan of King's College.

"The whole process has been extremely smooth and well organised, and the response from students and staff has been fantastic."

"A pleasure to work with"

The REACH study invited all young people in Years 7 to 9 to take part in a short questionnaire about their mental health and life experiences during usual lesson time. We know that most mental health problems begin when young people are still at school. But we need to know more about why, when faced with similar challenges, some young people experience mental health problems and others do not. This is what the REACH study is trying to find out.

"All of the students we worked with – including those who did not take part in REACH – were exceptionally well behaved, polite, engaged, and a pleasure to work with," said Mr Morgan. "Your colleagues have been very helpful and supportive, and have gone out of their way to make us feel welcome. The atmosphere in every classroom, and in the school in general, has been wonderful!"

We're look forward to continuing our work with the REACH study. Download the assembly presentation given to our students about the project. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do contact Mr Everitt or Mr Duffett at HBAED or Craig Morgan from King’s College London at .
