how Adolescents Deal with and Adjust to Pandemic resTrictions

Welcome to our website for the ADAPT research study

What is this study about?

We are interested in finding out how teenagers are coping with and responding to the ongoing restrictions and changes in their lives?

What aspects do teenagers find most difficult?

How are our young people feeling at the present time?

What has helped young people to adjust to the current pandemic and the ongoing restrictions and changes to their lives?

We would like to invite teenagers from across Ireland to take part in our study (12-18 year olds).

In order to take part in this study, parental consent is necessary & the agreement of the young person is also a necessary requirement.
