Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This chapter reports on a study into the way in which young people and their family carers identify and understand emotional difficulties. The project helped a small number of young people to talk about their own experiences of mental distress, how they coped and the support they received. In addition, it explored how family carers and care staff respond to the young people's needs and how well health, social care and other services support them.
