Making mental health services better for young people

We want children and young people to have the best mental health and wellbeing. We also understand that people and communities have the experience and expertise that can help us shape what mental health services might look like.

We want to know from your experiences what you think about children and young people’s mental health services in Dorset. We also want to know what would make these services better.

This questionnaire is for anyone who has an opinion or view about children and young people’s mental health services. Please share your honest opinions and experiences. This will help us work together to improve local services.

If you are under 16, you need consent from your parent/carer before you can complete this survey. Please make sure your parent/carer signs it before you send it back to us.
