Public meeting report - teenage mental health

Mental health is high on the agenda of both Healthwatch North Somerset and Healthwatch England. The picture locally is not a pretty one, and as an organisation, Healthwatch North Somerset has received details of a number of issues from the public.

Our intelligence tells us that there is much to be done to improve services.  

Access to mental health services for young people are particularly problematic, both locally and nationally; at the same time, mental health issues for children and young people are on the increase.  

Mental health is stigmatised, and children and young people are especially vulnerable and hard to reach.  

Healthwatch North Somerset recommends that access to mental health services in North Somerset is addressed as a priority.
