YoungMinds is working with NHS England and the Department of Health to find out the views of children, young people and families/carers about mental health services in England.
The information from this survey will be used to help improve mental health services for children and young people and to make it easier for young people to get help and support in schools and in their local area. Young people know best how they want to get help and support so it’s really important you have a chance to share your views, that’s why we are inviting you to take part in this survey.
Who can take part?
This survey is for young people aged up (and including) to 25 years old. We want to hear from everyone in this age group! This includes both young people who have used mental health services and those who haven’t. It also means we want to make sure we hear from young people from lots of different backgrounds and with different experiences, including young people who have been in care; young people who have left education; lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans young people and young people of all different ethnicities and faiths.
Why take part?
Sharing your views could help improve children and young people’s mental health services, help young people become better informed about mental health and help make sure that the support provided for young people is delivered in the best way, in the best places possible.
The survey should take 10 - 20 minutes. Please make your voice heard!
