The focus of this theme is to help adolescents and young people who have been diagnosed with long-term conditions such as obesity, diabetes epilepsy and inflammatory bowel disease understand their condition and how best to improve their own health. We are particularly interested in the quality of healthcare they receive and in improving health policy that may affect their physical and mental health.
