Review of the effectiveness and appropriateness of peer-delivered health promotion interventions for young people

Young people and mental health : a systematic review of research on barriers and facilitators

This review provides a summary of evidence to help develop, implement and evaluate interventions for promoting good mental health amongst young people aged 11 to 21 years.

This systematic review was published by EPPI-Centre in 2002 .Systematic reviews aim to find as much as possible of the research relevant to the particular research questions, and use explicit methods to identify what can reliably be said on the basis of these studies.

Including diverse groups of children and young people in health promotion and public health research: a review of methodology and practice

This report combines a review of relevant literature with an in-depth look at research practice to examine the extent to which socially diverse populations have been, or might be, reflected in research. The report had a focus on health promotion and public health research with children and young people but its key messages are relevant to research in all topics with a range of age groups.

Health promotion, inequalities and young people's health : a systematic review of research
