Young people’s mental health services

Young people’s mental health services

For young people adolescence is often a trying time, with many physical, emotional and social changes going on in their lives. Young people need a coordinated mental health service, with easy access (probably in schools) to a confidential service, where there is no way for teachers, peers, or parents to find out.


Young people's mental health services is an idea already listed under Young People's Healthcare category.

Professionals that young people are in contact with (youth workers, teachers etc.) need to have an understanding of mental health, and feel able to pass on concerns about young people in the care. In addition, they need to have an understanding that simply smiling can have a positive impact on emotional health and well-being
