About the project

Child Anxiety Treatment in the context of COVID-19 (Co-CAT) is a research project funded by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC)/UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) COVID-19 Rapid Response Initiative (managed by the Medical Research Council). 

The project sets out to test whether OSI works as well as what services are otherwise offering to help children with anxiety problems, throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. It involves families of children aged 5-12 years old referred for treatment for anxiety problems, and offering their parents an online program (OSI) to help them to help their children.

This trial is IRSTCN registered and included on the NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) Portfolio.
