Feel Happy In Healthcare

 

 

Early intervention to support those with mental health issues is thought to drastically improve their lives.


Yet many young people say they experience a lack of good quality and timely help that’s tailored to their individual needs.

As part of The Feel Happy Fix Live, 16 to 25-year-olds from across the UK have been identifying the biggest issues relating to healthcare for young people with mental health conditions. They’re also proposing practical solutions that they think will result in change for the better.
