A multidisciplinary group sought to adopt an approach in promoting mental health which began with young people’s own concerns. Using a questionnaire distributed to eighty 14-15-year-olds, the group established that young people had particular worries about self-esteem, self-image, family & personal relationships, loss & bereavement, & teacher/parent expectations. These issues will be addressed in a resource pack that is being developed by the working group.
