Parents' Survey for EWMH Needs Assessment

Closed 17 Dec 2017

Opened 15 Nov 2017

Results Updated 7 Mar 2018



Children and young people’s emotional wellbeing and mental health impacts upon every area of their lives, from their educational achievements, their relationships with peers and the adults they come into contact with, to the choices they make in life every day. Children and young people with good emotional and mental health are better able to contribute and achieve in life, and good mental health is also important for good physical health.

It’s estimated that at least 10% of young people suffer from a diagnosable mental health problem, with many more experiencing issues around anxiety, stress and body image. This can lead to poor emotional wellbeing and low levels of resilience, resulting in young people being less able to cope with the challenges of life. Left unchecked, this can spiral into acute, long-term illness.

To ensure that children and young people achieve the best chance of a happy and healthy life and are supported to cope when life becomes difficult, Surrey County Council and Surrey Clinical Commissioning Groups have agreed that parents and carers are asked for their views as part of the Needs Assessment process.

We really appreciate your help with this 10 minute survey. Results of this survey will be available from this website on 22 December.
