CYP Mental Health Digital Review

In partnership with Kent Surrey Sussex Academic Health Science Network, we have developed a Pan-Sussex Children and Young People’s (CYP) Mental Health Digital Review to provide valuable insight into how young people experience digital mental health platforms.

This youth-led research study involved extensive feedback from young people, enabling a strong youth voice and presence within the recommendations for future improvements for how digital services are delivered.

To ensure a wide range of young people’s voices were heard, this study included distribution of a Sussex-wide survey to over 80 young people, a youth-led Digital Wellbeing Event, and a focus group from Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust’s Youth Research Café.

Some of the key recommendations gathered by the CYP Mental Health Digital Review are:

  • More online support for 18-25 year olds
  • Raise awareness within education
  • Create links between digital, education, and creative sectors
  • Ensure promotion of diversity and inclusion
  • Consider accessibility of content and services
