Summary
Brief summary
Throughout young people’s lives there are many different events and factors that can have an impact on their life course. Changing health states, different lived experiences, exposure to diverse opportunities, education, and influences from cultural and socioeconomic circumstances can all have pivotal roles. The MQ-MINDS Pilot Cohort Study aims to pilot the establishment of a large, longitudinal cohort study with a young adult demographic and routinely capturing information on life experiences and exposures and their impact on health-related quality of life, lifestyle, health, continuing education and career trajectories, which will be instrumental in understanding the determinants of healthy, resilient individuals over a unique segment of their life course.
