This project builds on the findings of an earlier project to co-design and build a resource hub offering information and links to mental health and well-being services for care-experienced young people across Wales.
Young people in and leaving care often have poorer mental health and well-being that the wider population and cannot always access appropriate or timely support. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, there has been a shift in services moving to remote contact. It is important to wot with care-experienced young people to ensure that these new online services are accessible and relevant to their needs and preferences.
Activities and Methods
- collate a list of mental health and wellbeing services in Wales with care-experienced people, and organisations and individuals working with care-experienced young people.
- co-produce and test context with care-experienced young people.
feedback to mental health and wellbeing services informed by young people.
- design a simple, user friendly, freely accessible resource hub for this content.
disseminate the resource hub to young people, foster and kinship carers, and organisations, practitioners, educators and researchers who work with care-experienced young people.
