Youth and Loneliness: Dialogue & Debate

Resource type: Webinar

A Dialogue & Debate webinar on ‘Youth and Loneliness’, providing a platform to talk candidly about the risks of loneliness and its mental health implications for young people today.

In discussing these issues, we hope to raise awareness of the support provided by the Government, charities and the education sector, to help young people who might be affected.

This webinar was live-streamed on Wednesday 12 August 2020, and was presented by Cumberland Lodge Fellow Alexander Blower. He was joined by guest panellists:

  • Tim Leech – CEO, WaveLength
  • Dr Farhana Mann – Psychiatrist; Wellcome Clinical Research Training Fellow
  • Kerrie Starkie – UK Youth Voice 

We experienced some audio issues early on in this webinar but they have been addressed to improve the listening experience.
