We are publishing Thriving, our report into children and young people's mental health, to coincide with Mental Health Awareness week 16 - 22 May.
We wrote Thriving to help make sure children and young people are listened to by the people making decisions about mental health services for them. The report is already helping to inform the redesign of local mental health services.
Why we wrote the report
- information provided using words and images that are meaningful to them
- stories of how other children and young people have managed different mental health problems
- help to develop resilience; how to ‘bounce back’ after a difficult time.
Thriving went to the Emotional Health and Wellbeing Board meeting on 4th May 2016. At this meeting the Board said that the learning points will be incorporated into their plans for redesigning services.
