The next Health Inequality is on the topic of mental health and young people.
Many of your Community Health Initiatives in Edinburgh will be working with young people, either directly or indirectly.
Mental health is a big issue for many young people, and providing appropriate support can have a huge impact on a young person’s wellbeing as they get older.
‘Mental Health & Wellbeing among adolescents in Scotland: profile and trends’ will summarise the recent report by Carolyn Black and Chris Martin looking at data from two standard measures used in the SALSUS survey with 26,000 adolescents in Scotland in order to draw conclusions about young people’s mental health & wellbeing and emphasise trends.
It will also include an update on the review of children’s and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing service and support for Edinburgh, and will be discussing what needs to be included as part of ‘Sense of Belonging 2’ – the second joint strategy for improving the mental health and wellbeing of people in Lothian.
