Are you a Child or a Young Person who has experience of emotional or mental health difficulties? Do you care for a Child or a Young Person who has experience of emotional or mental health difficulties? Do you work with Children and Young People? If yes, there is an opportunity to get involved in shaping and designing services for Children and Young People in Surrey to address emotional wellbeing and mental health needs. Surrey County Council in partnership with Surrey Clinical Commissioning Groups1 is holding a series of events for families, children, young people and professionals to join an open and honest discussion about the future of emotional wellbeing and mental health services for children and young people across Surrey.
The series of workshops will run between 14 January and 22 January 2019 in locations across the county including Staines, Ewell, Caterham, Dorking, Woking, Godalming and Farnham. They will be tailored for different groups and will provide an opportunity for everyone to contribute to the way emotional wellbeing and mental health support and care is provided for children, young people, families and carers. Full details can be found on the NHS Guildford and Waverley CCG website and Surrey County Council website.
The daytime and evening sessions will allow people to talk about their hopes and concerns regarding the emotional wellbeing and mental health service, identify the challenges and focus on what good care for our children and young people could look like.
Views captured from the workshops will be incorporated into the planning of future service specifications. Details of feedback captured in the sessions will be published.
