The Collecting Histories and Employment during Recovery (CHEER) study aims to provide a long-term picture of career development activities of young adults living with serious mental health conditions. From this study, we will better understand the work and education experiences, and the supports and barriers encountered by young adults with serious mental health conditions when trying to achieve their work and/or education goals, as well as how becoming a parent has impacted their work and education experiences.
