Improve the quality of mental health services for young people in the UK
We are a group of A-level politics students that have taken the opportunity in a project to highlight this issue and gain support for this issue to see what change we can make in the country and hope to increase funding for young peoples services. Don't let the voices of students go unheard and lets see what we can do to help solve this ever concerning issue
Why is this important?
Mental health services for young people in the UK are doing their best to support what can be a major issue for students, both in formal education and university alike, but many services across the UK simply cannot keep up with this increasing demand.
Waiting list lengths for counselling are some of the longest they've ever been and many young people simply cannot get the help they desperately need due to a lack of people able to support them. This combined with soaring number of helpline calls surely suggest that mental health services should be improved right?
