Mental Health | Young People asked to have their say in new website project

Forces Children Scotland is proud to support Children’s Mental Health Week (07-13 February 2022).

No child or young person should have to face mental health problems on their own.

That’s why we are growing together with children and young people from serving and veteran families to co-produce mental health and wellbeing services for children and young people from serving and veteran families across Scotland.

Forces Children Scotland has received funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust to deliver Your Mind Matters – A project which is working directly with young people, from serving and veteran families, to co-produce mental health and wellbeing digital and face-to-face services.

Right now, young people are co-creating a website for peers and family members as part of Your Mind Matters, who are calling for more young people from serving and veteran families to have their say in what it will look like and how it interacts with visitors to help support mental health and wellbeing.

This information is so important because it will help to ensure no child or young person, from a serving or veteran family, will face mental health problems on their own and that the voice of young people is at the heart of the creative process in developing the Your Mind Matters website.

So, if you are a young person from a serving or veteran family, please get involved and have your say by completing our questionnaire today.
