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.
