From 10am – 3pm at Royal Cornwall Showground, ‘Early Help for Mental Health’ will aim to:
  • Agree what early help for mental health is and look at the evidence.
  • Look at local model (Bloom) and models elsewhere in the country and best practice.
  • Understand what children; young people and their families/carers want.
  • Start to design a model to be co-produced further with children; young people and their families/carers.
The workshop will help to develop an Early Help for Mental Health Model/ Process based on the needs of children and young people and their families/ carers.
If you would like to attend, please email Zoe Milne on to reserve your place.

Key Data on Adolescence 2015

The latest trends in young people's health and lifestyle have been published by AYPH.
New developments include the emergence of e-cigarettes and 'legal highs'. The publication highlights reductions in teenage pregnancy and smoking since 1997. Mental health continues to be a major issue, although concern has now switched from suicide among young men to the rise of self-harm by cutting or other methods.
There are currently 11.7 million young people aged 10-24, forming one fifth of the population. Nearly two million 10-19 year olds live in the most deprived areas of England and nearly one in five 19-24 year olds are not in education, employment or training.
Key Data on Adolescence 2015 can be downloaded from the website, along with powerpoint slides and datasets.

West Cornwall Youth Trust

West Cornwall Youth Trust was established in 2010 to provide support to young people in Cornwall, with a view to enabling them to take part in worthwhile activities that they may otherwise not be able to afford. The primary way in which this is achieved is by offering financial assistance or grants to charitable organisations who can, in turn, help young people in West Cornwall – generally those who live west of an imaginary line between St Austell and Newquay, including the Isles of Scilly.
