Summary of report content

My Health, Our Future is our project exploring the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people in Suffolk.

Children and young people take part in a survey about their wellbeing.

The survey includes questions about things like body image, self-esteem, harmful online content, resilience, self-harm, screen time and other issues.

We also include measures of wellbeing and self-esteem that are widely used in research that mean our results can be compared with national studies.

Generally, the survey is delivered as part of a co-produced lesson plan on mental health and wellbeing in school, which has helped to ensure an excellent response rate.

We talked to a couple of schools in Haverhill about how they have used their reports to improve student wellbeing.
