Now is the perfect time to join Young Healthwatch Westminster!
We are a group of young volunteers (14-24 years old) from all across North West London. We share a hunger for our voices are heard in the design and delivery of the health services we use.Our aim is to help young people get the support they need, and that their voices are heard by deicison makers in mental health provision, planning and delivery.
- We have published a mental health survey to capture how young people think about their mental health, what causes them stress, their knowledge of local and national support, and of course, the impact of COVID-19 on their wellbeing. We are using the responses to help us map where young people need more information and support.
- We plan and run workshops and events offering young people the chance to find out how to access the mental health support they need, as well as the opportunity to have their say . Take a look at an example of one of our projects here
- We produce resources for young people with details of where to find mental health support
- We also provide training opportunities
