After the success of our first young people’s mental health survey, we have a follow up survey to be completed by as many young people in the Stanley area as we can manage. These results are really important to shaping what we do, as they give a clear snapshot of the young people we are working with, and the effects of lockdown and COVID on their Mental Health. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/VTZ2HKC
