Mental Health and Covid-19: In Our Own Words.

In their new report, Barnardos, are asking the Government to listen to the voices of children and young people, recognise the disproportionate impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the most vulnerable, and ensure that mental health and wellbeing approaches prioritise prevention and early intervention.

Barnardo’s worked with a group of 10 young people to produce a new report Mental Health and Covid-19: In Our Own Words. It brings together insights gathered by young people - who surveyed nearly 150 children and young people - and those gathered by Barnardo’s through our national survey of over 100 children and young people we support, as well as 4,000 children and young people through a YouGov survey from our Big Conversation.
