Overview

Do you want to help us understand the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on young people?

This study will explore young people’s physical health and emotional wellbeing through the pandemic. The findings are important, even if there are no or few further COVID-19 cases in Victoria.

The YoungLives team, together with researchers from the SchoolNuts study at Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (at Royal Children’s Hospital campus in Parkville), are leading important research to learn more about COVID-19.

We hope to understand why some people are infected, why symptoms vary between people, whether there are any long-term effects and young people’s experiences of the pandemic.
