No Limits have been commissioned by Hampshire County Council and the five Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Groups to carry out a consultation with children and young people, professionals working with them and parents / carers in relation to Children and Young People’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health.

To achieve this outcome, your involvement in this process is very important to us and through both views and opinions from users of Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health services, non-service users and families; they will influence and help make improvements in emotional, psychological and mental health services for children and young people.

The consultation will run from the 28th October-20th December 2013 and will take the form of –

a questionnaire available either online or paper based targeting children aged 8-12, young people aged 13-18, parents / carers and professionals;

individual interviews with parents / carers, young people and key staff;

focus groups with children and young people to develop a pledge on Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health; and

Please answer as honestly and as detailed as you can as it will also serve to give us a better understanding of how your experience of Children and Young People’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health services.
