9.00: Introduction (FLACSO)

9.30: PANEL I
Inclusive research agenda involving adolescents.
Moderator: Carlota Ramírez, FLACSO

Senior Lecturer in Public Health

Division of Health Research – Lancaster University

Title: Young masculinities, sex and social deprivation
My principle research interests are in adolescence and health related risk taking with a focus on gender, sexual health and pornography. I am particularly interested in young men’s health and how this intersects with both masculinities and social exclusion to provide a context within which health risk taking takes place. Seeking to understand risk taking in this way enables us to move away from models of individual behaviour change, to a more productive exploration of the social contexts and forces that need to be addressed to bring about large-scale changes in health outcomes for young people. I am also interested in exploring the mechanisms and potential for the participation of young people in research and decision-making.

Professor of Health Inequalities

Division of Health Research – Lancaster University

Title: LGBT+ Young People and Mental Health: The impact of social inequalities and marginalisation
My research is concerned with mental health inequality especially in relation to age, sexuality, gender and social class. I have conducted studies investigating suicide, self-harm, emotional distress, wellbeing and happiness. My research attempts to investigate and develop understandings of the social, economic and cultural origins of mental health and wellbeing, and produce evidence that can inform policy and practice. For the past twenty years I have been working, teaching and researching in the field of public health within the NHS and higher education institutions. My research concentrates on mental health inequalities and their social determinants. The programme of empirical study I am developing aims to understand why and how social inequality and marginalisation influence mental health and wellbeing, and the policies and interventions required to promote the mental health of disadvantaged population groups.

10.30 Break

10.45  PANEL II
Enhancing participatory processes through research and interventions.
Moderator: Raul Mercer, FLACSO

Lecturer in Health Inequalities

Division of Health Research – Lancaster University

Title: Involving marginalised young people in research Challenges and strategies
Alex is a social scientist, with a primary research interest in social and geographical health inequalities. In exploring these issues, Alex has developed an expertise in participatory and qualitative methods of inquiry. Alex has an interest in the health and social inequalities experienced by people who may be considered marginalised (including people with intellectual disabilities, LGBTQ young people and lower income families) as well innovations in policy and practice designed to reduce those inequalities. Her research is therefore situated at the intersect of disability studies, geography and qualitative health research. She is particularly interested in qualitative explorations of the health and social inequalities experienced by people intellectual disabilities.

Senior Health Advisor: Global Programmes
Save the Children (UK)

Title: Participation of children and young people to create change
My relationship with research is as both implementer and researcher. I am a Senior Health Advisor at the NGO Save the Children and have worked in public health, clinical and advisory roles for over 25 years. I provide technical advice to child and adolescent health programmes in many fragile states, low, middle and high-income countries. I also lead a Research and Development portfolio that brings together academic, NGO and industry partners to study and test new approaches to preventing and treating entrenched problems that cause morbidity and mortality. My research  interests reach across a spectrum of social science and biological science, leading current studies in both arenas. However, they share a common public health purpose to better illuminate and understand inequity and identify interventions that bring effective change for children, young people and families. I have a long-term interest in practical applications of child rights and human rights, through participation, mobilisation and policy, to catalyse improvements in healthcare, health outcomes, equity and social justice.
