Mental ill health has been voted as the number one issue for young people at our last Youth Congress sitting.
There are many people working on this important issue and we would urge more collaborative working. We have met with key stakeholders and are supporting young people run a rewind mental health campaign.
We urge government to:
- Properly fund services for young people with mental health problems;
- Provide more programmes to encourage young people to seek help;
- Fully consult with young people in developing better Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services in NI.
- Implement improved services, education and an end to mental health related stereotyping
