In 2016, Public Health England commissioned a report investigating the The Mental Health of Children and Young People In London.
The report aimed to:
- describe the importance of mental health in children and young people (CYP)
- describe the case for investing in mental health
- provide a descriptive analysis of mental health in CYP in London
- summarise the evidence of what works to improve mental health in CYP in order to inform local transformation of services
Four years on and the recommendations in this report still hold true. The report contained really informative infographics that help communicate the importance of and strategies to improve the mental health of CYP. Some of these key infographics are illustrated below:
Risk and Protective Factors for CYP’s Mental Health
Mental Health Illness Facts for CYP
The Relationship Between Mental and Physical Health
Building Resilience (The ability to cope with adversity and adapt to change)
