Children and Young People's Mental Health Task Force: recommendations
Putting the experiences and voices of children and young people at the centre

Putting the experiences and voices of children and young people at the centre

Throughout its work the Taskforce has recognised that children and young people should be at the centre of creating solutions designed for them. The Youth Commissioners on Mental Health have emphasised the need for co-designed solutions. Children and Young People's Mental Health services will not be fit to serve children and young people unless they are actively engaged in their creation.

Recommendation 11: Scottish Government and COSLA should commission means to ensure recommendations and actions required for their implementation are co-designed and co-produced in partnership with children and young people going forward.
