Suffolk schools report
The CCG has been working with Healthwatch Suffolk and the other Suffolk CCGs to commission a report 'My health, our future' to understand children and young people's mental health in Suffolk.
Healthwatch Suffolk have information about why children and young people's mental health and emotional wellbeing must remain a priority in Suffolk.
The latest report is available on Healthwatch Suffolk website.
Feedback was reported to the public in a number of ways and this can be found here.
Across the two years of this project, responses were recorded from almost 14,000 young people about a range of issues including self-harm, body image, wellbeing, self-esteem and social media. Many of the findings are of real concern and highlight why we must all continue to prioritise the wellbeing of young people across our county.
The report has already been used by schools and professionals to adapt and improve support available to young people. You can watch this video of Dr. Beth Mosley (Clinical Psychologist at Thurston Community College), who talks about how her school has used their report to improve student wellbeing.
In the coming year, Healthwatch Suffolk will be engaging with Pakefield High School, East Point Academy, Ormiston Denes Academy, East Coast College and the Benjamin Britten Academy of Music and Mathematics in the Waveney area as part of the next report.
