Submission Deadline:  28th May 2022

We are the Youth Policy Development Group, a team of young people aged 16-25, working directly with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport to represent and share the voice of England’s Youth to politicians at the highest levels of government, in order mainstream youth voice across all national decisions.
At this crucial stage, we need your help.

The government is going to publish a 10-year Mental Health & Wellbeing Plan, focused on improving mental health and wellbeing particularly for people who experience worse outcomes than the general population.  The Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) have asked for help understanding young people's priorities for improving youth mental health and wellbeing.  

Have your say on the following questions, and we will make sure to share YOUR ideas directly to DHSC government officials in a roundtable discussion on the 6th of June.
