Redesigning services to support children and young people's emotional wellbeing and mental health is an immediate priority for the Government of Jersey.
Over recent years we have been working to improve services and support for Islanders emotional wellbeing and mental health through the:
The draft Children and Young
People Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Strategy 2021 to 2025 builds on all this previous work. It takes into account the COVID-19 pandemic and sets out a clear direction.
The draft strategy has been coproduced with children, young people, parents, carers and professionals. It sets out 16 actions to take forward change over the next 4 years. Actions will start at different stages across that period. This will help us make change and improve services in the best ways. There will be detailed plans developed as we move forward, so everyone understands what is happening, when and why.
The draft strategy is designed to improve mental health outcomes for children and young people in Jersey.
Following responses to our survey, we want to set up a new Strategic Advisory Panel (SAP) to help us check how the strategy is working and delivered. It will include young people (over 13 years old), professionals and people working in the community.
The draft strategy was consulted with between 10 May 2021 and 11 June 2021. The 3 main aims of the consultation were:
- get feedback that can help us produce the final strategy
- prioritise action points so we are clear which ones we should focus on first
- find out who is interested in becoming part of the SAP
The draft strategy was produced in a number of languages and as a summary version (English only).
