Children and young people’s mental health: prevention evidence
Public Health England have published a summary report and outputs from a review of evidence for universal approaches to improving children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing. This series of reports summarises the evidence for the effectiveness of universal approaches to improving children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing and are intended for strategic and operational leads, working on children and young people’s mental health.
The report includes the results of the additional work the Young People’s Health Partnership’s led with Health and Wellbeing Alliance partners to gather existing evidence and run focus group discussions with young people to explore a range of young people’s perspectives about what keeps them mentally well.
You can find the full review here, as well as copies of the Scoping review of existing evidence and a briefing setting out the results and recommendations from discussions with young people.
They would like to thank all YPHP partners – Carers Trust; Friends, Families and Travellers; the National LGB&T Partnership; the Association of Mental Health Providers; Nacro; NAVCA; and the Men’s Health Forum – for all their work on the project.
