Current opportunities

Apply to join our new YPAG!

We are currently welcoming applications from people between 13 & 21 years old to become members of a new Young People’s Advisory Group (aka YPAG!), which will work with both us at McPin and Kings College London’s Centre for Society & Mental Health. This is an amazing opportunity to be involved in really important and interesting research. We are particularly keen to hear from people between 13 – 16!

Some key information:

  • This is a paid role!
  • The YPAG will usually meet every few months (over Zoom) to learn about and advise on children and young people’s mental health research, as well as shape the wider activities of the McPin Young People’s Network.
  • Members also get involved in between meetings by completing tasks over email, phone calls, and across our digital platforms.
  • You must be between 13 – 21 to apply, and live in England

Join a workshop to prioritise mental health concerns during covid-19

What’s the Project?

The McPin Foundation are teaming up with the Health Foundation to reflect on the impact of Covid-19 on young people’s mental health. We are particularly focused on young people experiencing inequalities and the impact that covid-19 has had on them, in comparison to other groups. We are producing an infographic (a visual summary of key information) that will show some of the major findings about what the research has found. 

What’s the opportunity?
To support us in developing the infographic, we are looking for 6-8 young people to attend a 2-hour zoom workshop led by the McPin young people’s team.
