Meet the team

The Blueprint research team is a multidisciplinary team which includes 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, and young person co-researchers and experts in engaging with young people with lived experience from Common Room.

The Blueprint project is also supported by an Advisory Group which includes young people and parents and an independent Project Oversight Steering Group.
