ATTUNE: Understanding mechanisms and mental health impacts of Adverse Childhood Experiences to co-design preventive arts and digital interventions

PROJECT STATUS: Ongoing
/
START DATE AND DURATION: August 21
Summary

This novel multi-site study will explore young people’s experiences, understandings of mental health and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) using varied creative arts-based methods. Adverse childhood experiences are difficult, and potentially traumatic events, which may have lasting effects on health and well-being. This includes direct experiences of neglect; physical, mental or sexual abuse; adverse household experiences such as violence or substance abuse; and community risks such as poverty and peer victimisation. Many young people experience ACEs and ATTUNE hope to understand the effect of ACEs on adolescent mental health.
