DescriptionThis summary report describes the updated findings on the evaluation of the MindOut social and emotional wellbeing programme for senior level students in Irish post-primary schools. In 2017, a large-scale evaluation study was undertaken to evaluate the impact of the revised MindOut programme for students aged 15-18 years in designated disadvantaged (DEIS) postprimary schools nationally. Employing a cluster randomised controlled trial design, a total of 32 DEIS schools were randomly allocated into either the intervention (receiving MindOut) or control (no-intervention) group. Data were collected from students prior to programme delivery (N=675), immediately following implementation (N=497) and at 12-months followup (N=429). Students’ outcomes were assessed in relation to their social and emotional wellbeing, academic outcomes and mental health and wellbeing and data were compared between the two groups over time.
