LONGTRENDS (UiB) Social inequality in adolescent mental health in a life course perspective

The project is financed by Norges forskningsråd (NFR), and aims to better understand social inequality in mental health, and will map societal trends in mental health amongst adolescents from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds. The project will research what roles social support, family structure, gender, larger life-events and transitions play in the connection between socioeconomic status and mental health. Catharina is the project coordinator.



Health Behaviour in School-Aged Children (HBSC) 

Since 1982 HBSC has been a pioneer cross-national study gaining insight into young people's well-being, health behaviours and their social context. This research collaboration with the WHO Regional Office for Europe is conducted every four years in 50 countries and regions across Europe and North America. With children and young people accounting for 42% of our world's population, HBSC uses its findings to inform policy and practice to improve the lives of millions of young people. UiB is the Data Management Centre (DMC) for HBSC.




Based at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH), this large project is funded by the European Unions’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme as part of the response to tackle the childhood obesity epidemic. The project will prevent overweight and obesity in adolescents by providing knowledge and infrastructure on policies to support making the healthiest choices the preferred ones. UiB is responsible for work package 8 (data privacy, data handling and data storage).
