Alongside Healthwatch Hammersmith & Fulham they are co-producing a project to investigate how young people aged 11-18 who live or go to school in the borough are feeling and need your help to reach out to as many young people as possible!
They want to find out how the COVID-19 pandemic affected mental health?
Are they aware of what mental health services and support is available to them?
Do they know how to access help?
We want to know whether the support available is working for young people and to make recommendations for any improvements needed and work with professionals to make sure they are actioned.
We would really appreciate it if can you share with and encourage the young people you work with to complete it. Please also share through your networks and in any newsletters.
Can this be perhaps, be done as part of a workshop or PHSE session? In registration or assembly.
We are also asking professionals working with young people who may not have digital access to support them to complete this wherever possible. Please contact Brenda.Whinnett@lbhf.gov.uk for support.
