The #BeeWell research team – led by Professor Neil Humphrey, based at The University of Manchester, and Professor Jess Deighton, based at UCL and Anna Freud – has been key to shaping #BeeWell. The team uses the survey data to identify trends in what young people are telling us, so that we can act together to improve their wellbeing.
