QUAHRC Methods Podcast: Co-producing research with young people with lived experience
Norha talks with Rachel and Niamh, the coordinator and a member of McPin Foundation's Young People's Network, about co-production of research with young people with lived experience. They present their recent work about screen use and adolescent mental health as an example, and answer questions including: What are necessary conditions to make co-production with young people possible? What works and what doesn't? Who can you contact to engage young people in your research?
Niamh Elam is a member of the McPin’s Young People Advisory a group where she helps to guide and advise researchers on where and how to carry out research. Niamh is also a Primary School teacher and so brings a different perspective to the group.
Rachel Temple is a Public Involvement in Research Manager at the McPin Foundation. She leads the McPin’s Young People Advisory Group and the wider young people’s network, ensuring meaningful involvement of young people in mental health research in ways that are comfortable, accessible, and engaging.
