Welcome to the COMIC Research website!
You're probably wondering what COMIC stands for? COMIC stands for Child Oriented Mental health Intervention Centre (the "h" is silent"). At COMIC we are passionate about working with children and young people to empower and support their wellbeing. We place children, young people and their families at the centre of everything we do in order to develop interventions that are accessible, child-friendly and child-focused. The COMIC virtual network of researchers is led by two strong researchers, Dr Clare Fenton, Honorary Senior Lecturer at Hull York Medical School and Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist with the Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Professor Lina Gega, Chair in Child Mental Health at the Hull York Medical School and at the University of York. They bring strong clinical and academic leadership to the COMIC network of researchers and support the planning of the work around a central agenda of improving the mental health of children and young people. We are fortunate to work with a variety of professionals, organisations and families to help bring this vision to life. Feel free to check out our research pages to find out more about the research we are currently working on.
