Darragh McCashin MSCA Research Fellow  with TEAM ITN and hosted at University College Dublin, discusses his research blending technology with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)  to support young people' mental wellbeing.  CBT is one way that young people can explore their feelings with sadness, anxiety or other issues affecting a young person's mental health.   See how gaming can help to help  young people during therapy to engage with CBT and support the mental health of young people across Ireland.
