Mental Health and Covid-19: In Our Own Words.
16 October 2020
In their new report, Barnardos, are asking the Government to listen to the voices of children and young people, recognise the disproportionate impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the most vulnerable, and ensure that mental health and wellbeing approaches prioritise prevention and early intervention.
Barnardo’s worked with a group of 10 young people to produce a new report Mental Health and Covid-19: In Our Own Words. It brings together insights gathered by young people - who surveyed nearly 150 children and young people - and those gathered by Barnardo’s through our national survey of over 100 children and young people we support, as well as 4,000 children and young people through a YouGov survey from our Big Conversation.
