Children and young people’s mental health green paper: Consultation responseDownload (PDF 447KB)
Summary of report contentHealthwatch Wandsworth carried out this report in light of a Government green paper consultation on plans to improve mental health support for children and young people. Having received lots of feedback over the years from local people about children and young people’s mental health and their experiences of local services, Healthwatch Wandsworth decided to use the green paper consultation as an opportunity to reflect on feedback, and to find out how people feel about proposals for future change and what it means for local people. The local Healthwatch developed a set of four questions (based on the green paper questions) to facilitate discussions held with 52 people at an event in February 2018. Findings in the report have also been drawn from user stories from outreach activity between April 2016 and March 2018 and various other past consultation surveys carried out by Healthwatch Wandsworth. The report makes conclusions and recommendations around resources and funding, person-centred approaches to service development, inclusiveness of services and promotion of healthy behaviours.
