Support for young people's mental health, through the pandemic and after

Caroline has worked with Barnardo's to raise questions with the Mayor about support for the mental health and wellbeing of our children and young people, especially given the impact of Covid-19.

Specifically, Caroline asked the Mayor:

Child Mental Health Support
With the impact of COVID-19 on the mental health of children and young people, what work is being undertaken to target the most vulnerable to help them recover and give professionals the opportunity to identify safeguarding issues and other concerns?

Support for Child Wellbeing post-COVID
The charity Barnardo's warned reently that the COVID-19 pandemic has, and continues to have, a significant impact on children and young people's mental health and wellbeing. How are you working with boroughs to set out plans to deliver a programme of resilience-building and social activities for all children and young people?
