Exploring current issues around mental health for young people aged 0-25
On 25 November 2015 Higher York ran a Conference on young people’s mental health entitled “Everybody’s Business” at the National Science Learning Centre.
The Conference came about because the Higher York Board was concerned at the apparently rising incidence of student mental health problems. This chimed with evidence being considered York’s CAMHS Executive about growing problems in schools and other settings. The Conference therefore aimed to:
- develop a shared understanding of the scale of the issues;
- understand the provision that is available to help, and to identify any gaps;
- explore and share best practice, particularly around transitions.
The conclusions from the Conference will be presented to York’s Health and Wellbeing Board in March 2016.
