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:

  • Depression
  • Self-Image
  • Self-Harming
  • 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
