BYC Youth Select Committee

Here is a link to the British Youth Council’s Youth Select Committee on Mental Health; one of the processes that go into writing a report into the state of Mental Health services and education throughout the UK. BYC is a UK charity that works to empower young people and promote their interests and is run by young people, existing to represent the views of young people to government and decision-makers at a local, national, European and international level; and to promote the increased participation of young people in society and public life.

You can view the Final Report (pdf) and Oral Evidence Transcript (pdf) provided to the select committee below, which describes in detail everything discussed, and the important final conclusions that BYC has come to on young people’s mental health issues – the funding for state services, the role of education and awareness and stigma of issues.
