Youth Wellbeing Study - Directed by Prof Marc Wilson

We are a team of researchers and clinicians working towards better understanding the wellbeing of youth and rangatahi in Aotearoa New Zealand. Our research with young people is primarily in secondary schools, where we gather information about how young people are doing, what their needs are, and what resources would be most helpful to them and their communities.
