Description

The role of young people in local approaches to youth health and wider wellbeing: an analysis and interpretation using systems concepts

Within public health, there is a growing focus on the health of young people, with the World Health Organization describing this time of life as a “second decade, second chance” following previous emphasis on the earlier years. Among recommendations to improve youth health and wellbeing are initiatives encouraging youth-stakeholder collaboration when developing support available for young people. Through the application of systems concepts, this research examines how youth-stakeholder interactions currently shape local approaches to youth health and wellbeing, and their role in shaping the relevance of public health policy and practice to young people’s lives.

Sara Southall is a public health specialty registrar in the North West of England, with a background in general practice. Sara is based at Lancaster University through a PhD studentship funded by NIHR and CLAHRC NWC and is supervised by Prof. Elizabeth McDermott and Dr. Mark Limmer.
