Your voice matters! Young people’s experiences with mental health services in Wales

We want to understand what works, and what needs improving for young people accessing mental health services in Wales.

We would like to learn more about your experiences and, if you have used or been involved in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) or any other similar support.  

Alongside Healthcare Inspectorate Wales (HIW) and Estyn, we are on a mission to check that wellbeing and mental health services are providing timely and accessible services for young people aged between 11-16. So, let's join forces and breakdown barriers and ensure everyone can access the right help they need and deserve. 

By taking just a few minutes to complete our survey, you are helping shape the future of support for young people across Wales. This survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete and many questions are optional.

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) is the name for the NHS services that assess and treat young people with mental health difficulties. CAMHS teams are made up of therapists, child and adolescent psychiatrists (medical doctors specialising in mental health), nurses and social workers as well as other professionals. Please see the Mind website (External link) for more information.

Your response to this survey will be anonymous. This means that no-one will be able to identify you from your answers. 

If you are under 16, please ask a parent or carer before completing this survey.  You also might find it helpful to have a parent or carer nearby in case you need some help in answering the questions.

In case you would like any help or advice, you can contact the below organisations. We will remind you of these again at the end of the survey.

If you would like to request this survey in an alternative format, please contact Healthcare Inspectorate Wales and one of their friendly team will get back you.

Thank you for making a difference.
