Children and Young People's Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Strategy


About this Strategy:

The Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Strategy outlines the vision and priorities for children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing for South Gloucestershire, and maps out how this will be achieved.


Mental health impacts on all aspects of life, including quality of life, emotional wellbeing, physical health and length of life. For children and young people, it also affects their development, including cognitive abilities and social skills.


Achieving good mental health is not only about ensuring appropriate treatment services for mental ill health but is also about maintaining good mental health through prevention and resilience-building, as well as early identification and intervention for those who do not meet the threshold for treatment services.


We are particularly interested in hearing the views of residents and stakeholders to ensure the strategy captures all the main issues relating to children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing in South Gloucestershire and to identify any improvements to the strategy or whether you feel there is anything missing.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
