SEQual: Exploring the School Experiences of PRODIGY participants - a Qualitative study

Why is the study being done?

Many young people experience complex psychological difficulties that impact on their ability to lead the life they would like to. Many of these young people find it hard to engage in activities that are meaningful to them, such as education, employment, voluntary work or leisure and sport activities and have experienced social difficulties since childhood and early adolescence. We think that it is important to look at these young people’s experiences at school. 

The purpose of this study is to ask young people who took part in the PRODIGY trial about their school experiences.  

What are the aims of the study?

We are interested in whether young people’s school experiences are related to any later problems with leading the life they want to live.  

Who can take part in SEQual?

Young people who have previously participated in the PRODIGY research study are eligible to take part in this study. 

What does taking part involve?

Participants will meet with a researcher at a convenient location to take part in an interview about their time at school.  

The interview is informal and will last approximately 2 hours.
