A lot of young citizens experienced mental health challenges during the covid-19 lockdown as their everyday life was changed radically. They had to stay at home and were excluded from normal social activities. As part of the project “Giving young people a voice”, we initiated science communication with young people about their
mental health - as well as co-creation of coping strategies for empowerment. To enforce this process, we engaged in a close collaboration with a group of young people as co-researchers in planning and execution of a co-creation workshop, data collection, analysis, and communication.
