We heard...

However the research also reveals several areas in which young people parents and professionals are less confident.

Comments from George, our Youth Advisor

It’s really encouraging to see that 83% of professionals think young people should be more involved in shaping the decisions that impact day to day operations of their organisation.

“But it’s also clear that some young people and parents lack confidence and opportunities to make changes to mental health services in their local area, and can find it hard to access information about mental health which is useful to them.

This is something that really needs to be worked on - making information more easily accessible is crucial to getting help at an early stage. #TeamAmplified will be using these findings to work out what needs to be addressed first in order for mental health services to change."
