CP-Achieve May Bulletin 2021
In this edition, we are continuing to recruit to build increased consumer involvement in CP-Achieve. CP-Unite, our team of young adults aged 17-30 years, is doing amazing work in guiding the research agenda, and the regular meetings are extremely productive. We are now inviting parents, adolescents and adults to work with us on projects and working groups and your help would be appreciated if you have time to assist. Mentors are also required to support young people as research partners and mentoring is a wonderful way to grow personally and professionally.
