Work sets out to explore emotional wellbeing of young people in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin

Young people, carers, parents and stakeholders are being urged to have their say on emotional wellbeing services across Telford and Wrekin and Shropshire.

Telford & Wrekin and Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) as well as Telford & Wrekin Council and Shropshire Council have joined together to work on a project that will change emotional health and wellbeing services for children and young people across the area for the better.

They want to speak to people who use services to explore:

“What needs to happen to build strong emotional wellbeing and resilience in children, young people (0-25’s) and their families in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin?”

Deputy Executive Anna Hammond is the Senior Responsible Officer for the project, on behalf of the four organisations involved.  She said:

 “We want to know what needs to happen so that young people feel supported, stay independent and improve their emotional health and wellbeing. What people tell us will help us to design better services that enable young people to be resilient and maintain control of their life and health. “
