All about Mental Health
YOUNG PEOPLE'S VIEWS
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.
