PROJECT STATUS: Ongoing

START DATE AND DURATION: September 2020
Summary

This PhD study is developing an enhanced whole-school intervention for bullying prevention that is designed to benefit all students, and, in particular, those who are disadvantaged.

It builds on findings of a randomised controlled trial of the Learning Together intervention, which addressed mental and physical health in adolescents, and reported reduced bullying and substance use, and increased mental wellbeing. This research will lead to a funding application for a national evaluation.
