“Collaborative, high-impact, research in the area of youth mental health is vital to future generations of Irish young people  and this is core to the ethos of ESB’s Energy for Generation Fund” said Jerry O’Sulivan, ESB’s Deputy CEO.

In formally endorsing My World Survey 2, Minister for Higher Education Mary Mitchell O’Connor T.D encouraged participation, particularly among third level institutions saying “This timely piece of research will be instrumental in building and improving our collective knowledge of the mental health of our students. I sincerely hope that all institutions of higher education will take part in this essential research, which will shape our thinking of mental health in higher education in the future.”

My World Survey 2 is a 15-month research project, launching this month, with data collection taking place between October 2018 – May 2019. Final results will be published in December 2019.
