Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Children & Young People Mental Health Support

All about Mental Health


Healthwatch Cambridgeshire and Peterborough is an independent champion for health and care. They have conducted two surveys of young peoples views around mental health. This work follows on from our Thriving report, published last year, where young people told us they wanted mental health support that is meaningful and relevant to them. See both reports below.


As part of Being Happy, Being Me, Healthwatch recently visited four local secondary schools to encourage young people to talk about their opinions and experiences of mental health and the services available, give information about services and resources available in their area, think about how they use and understand language related to mental health.
