Young people and gender survey

09/01/17 . Partners

The NCB, the National Children's Bureau, is after young people's views on gender and emotional and mental wellbeing.

The 'getting on' survey wants to hear from young people aged 13-24 on ways of dealing with stressful or difficult things in life – in particular, how ideas about gender affect this. Young people are invited to complete a short survey or a longer survey which takes about 20-30 minutes with a prize draw for each. 

Boys are more likely than girls to be diagnosed with conduct disorder whereas girls are more likely to be diagnosed with depression or anxiety disorders. But diagnosis is only part of the story. What's really going on? Does gender affect how young people cope with stresses, or how others react to their behaviour? Tell NCB and you could win Love2Shop vouchers.

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.

Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
