Meet the team

The Blueprint research team was a multidisciplinary team which included:

  • mental health, child and family health and health service researchers from The University of Manchester and Cardiff University;
  • a children’s mental health clinician from our sponsor, Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Trust;
  • young person co-researchers from the McPin Foundation;
  • experts in engaging with young people with lived experience from Common Room.

The Blueprint project was also supported by an Advisory Group, which included young people and parents and an independent Project Oversight Steering Group.
