Introduction

Healthwatch Stockton-on-Tees Healthwatch in an independent organisation that works with local people, patients, services users, carers, community groups, organisations, service providers and commissioners to help improve local health and social care services to ensure they are meeting the needs of the local community. 

As a result of the current Covid 19 pandemic and subsequent ‘lockdown’ we are aware that the effect this may be having upon some young people can be significant. Having to remain at home and having limited face to face contact with family and friends, alongside the closure of schools and colleges may be having a detrimental impact on young people’s emotional and mental health.

We are looking to find out the extent that this is impacting upon young people (19 and under)  across the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees.
