A call has gone out for young people aged between 13 and 17 years of age to attend a youth workshop focusing on mental health awareness, which will be held at the Storehouse, Skegness, on Friday 0ctober 31, between 12 noon and 4pm.

The workshop is being run by Lincolnshire East Clinical Commissioning Group and aims to understand young peoples’ perceptions of the NHS.

Attendees will be asked to share what they think the health service looks like and what – for them – the positive and negative aspects of the NHS are.

“We’re also keen to ask young people how they would design the health system in Lincolnshire,” said Tracy Pilcher, Chief Nurse, Lincolnshire East CCG.

“We would really like to understand what young people think the health service would look like if it was designed with people their own age in mind.”

In addition, Lincolnshire East CCG want to understand what is important to young people, in terms of addressing specific mental health issues, as well as how these issues might affect young people.

Everyone who attends will receive lunch and a £10 Love to Shop voucher.

Anyone who would like to attend can confirm their attendance by Wednesday October 22 either by email public.engagement@gemcsu.nhs.uk or call 01522 515364.
