We have been working with Surrey Youth Focus to find out about what young people across Surrey think about the NHS. More than 220 people between the ages of 11 – 25 took part in an online survey and 2 focus groups. We have now released a report into the findings.
There was clear evidence that the top health concern was around mental health and the issues that can arise from bullying.
These top 4 issues were:
- Exam Pressure
Many people that took part in the project felt that Health & Education could do more to collaborate in tackling these issues.
Some of the suggestions included:
- All schools should adopt a zero-tolerance policy to bullying
- Those who have overcome bullying to be role models for others
- Interactive programmes on Mental Health
