Get involved with the TRIUMPH Network

Join TRIUMPH on our mission to bring together young people with academics, health practitioners, and policy-makers to find new ways to improve youth mental health and wellbeing, especially among those where need is greatest.

TRIUMPH believes that young people should be involved in all of the work that we do; if young people aren’t involved in these conversations then a part of the jigsaw puzzle is missing.

We have recruited a Youth Advisory Group who are involved in decisions about what the network does. This group also think about different ways for other young people to get involved.

If you would like to stay involved please join the network and you will get all of the information about what we do and opportunities that come up.

If you have ideas about how we could involve young people in TRIUMPH we would love to hear them. Please contact: Christina.McMellon@glasgow.ac.uk.
