What is MYRIAD?

The My Resilience in Adolescence project is a  Wellcome Trust Strategic Award, started in January 2015. It is based on the knowledge that adolescence is a vulnerable time for the onset of mental illness: 75% of mental disorders begin before the age of 24, and half by age 15. By promoting good mental health and intervening early, particularly in the crucial childhood and teenage years, we can help to prevent mental illness from developing and mitigate its effects when it does (Department of Health, 2011).


The William Allitt School is proud to be in partnership with the MYRIAD research project.
