A Healthy State of Mind: improving young people’s mental fitness

Localis, June 2017

The report on young people’s mental health aims to identify what the system requires to be able to work better to both offer immediate help to those with serious conditions and a wide and flexible variety of support for all those who feel they need it.

The report focuses on:

  • Overcoming barriers around first point of contact and access to services
  • The role of non-mental health professionals in helping young people with their mental fitness
  • The benefit for services of encouraging young people to have resilience, agency and independence
  • Settings where non-mental health professionals interact with young people – primarily primary care and education but also social services where there are high levels of state interaction
