We are delighted to share that the START project will now be incorporated within our new project STREAM (Scalable TRansdiagnostic Early Assessment of Mental health). STREAM builds on START by expanding beyond Autism Spectrum Conditions, and joining forces with other similar projects led by University of Liverpool, Birkbeck College, and Sangath. Eventually this page will link to the STREAM project website.
