Lancashire Mind survey to shape mental health services for young people

Mental Health charity Lancashire Mind has launched its first Children and Young People’s Survey to help shape the charity’s services and capture opinions towards mental health and wellbeing across the county.

Working with schools, community groups and parents/carers, Lancashire Mind aims to record current views on mental health amongst children and young people aged 10 and above.

Hannah Holden, Children and Young People’s Project Lead at Lancashire Mind, said: “We want to make sure that Lancashire Mind is providing the best possible service, especially in the current climate which many children and young people are finding difficult to cope with.

“We are asking young people to share their thoughts regarding mental health and the impact that Covid-19 has had on their wellbeing over the past year. If you are a teacher, carer or parent, please do get in touch to access the survey and parental consent form.

“The online survey is easy to complete and has been designed for children aged 10 and above. It is a valuable opportunity for young people to have their say and help influence the services and resources Lancashire Mind can offer.”

Lancashire Mind works with schools and community groups across the county to educate and promote mental health and resilience from early years, all the way up to young adults at college and university.

A new Youth Advisory Group for young people aged 14+ will also play a key role in providing insight into the issues children and young people in Lancashire care most about.

Tommy McIlravey, Chief Executive at Lancashire Mind, said: “We are a charity that exists to support the people of Lancashire and it is imperative that we listen to our children and young people when it comes to mental health.

“There are a lot of young people who are concerned about their future right now and this survey will assess those worries, identify areas where we can increase our support and help tailor resources to support children and young people across Lancashire.”
