Subject:New Qualitative Research Study on COVID19 and Mental Health among Young People In and Aged Out of Foster Care

Dear Colleagues, The Field Center for Children’s Policy, Practice & Research at the University of Pennsylvania is conducting a qualitative research study on the mental health experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic of older youth in foster care and those who recently exited foster care. We seek to understand what challenges young people experienced and learn what was, or would have been, helpful with addressing those challenges. Participants must be between the ages of 18 and 23 and either in or aged out of foster care. Additionally, participants must have experienced additional challenges related to their mental health during or as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic that they are willing to discuss. Participation in this study involves an in-depth telephone interview with a trained study social worker that will last for approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour. Research participants who complete a telephone interview will remain anonymous and will not be expected to provide any identifying information. Participants will receive a $40 Target gift card, which will be obtained digitally. You were identified to receive this email because of your professional connections to the child welfare or foster care systems. We are asking for your assistance in sharing this survey with eligible participants. To complete a pre-screening for eligibility regarding foster care status, age, and mental health experiences, participants can call or email a member of the study team, or use the QR code from the information below: Sarah Gzesh, ASW 215-573-1915 Email: covidmh-study@sp2.upenn.edu QR Code: For more information about this study, please contact the principal investigator, Dr. Johanna Greeson, by phone at 215-573-9779 or email at jgreeson@sp2.upenn.edu .
