The Young Healthwatch Conference took place at Kettering Conference Centre in February 2015.

On the day lots of people talked about their experiences of health and social care in Northamptonshire.

Lots of different people had stands to show what they do and the day was supported by the National Lottery fund.

Lots of young people and professionals talked about the lack of support available for children and young people who are experiencing difficulties with their mental health.

Healthwatch Northamptonshire with support from a range of groups of young people have put together this information guide.

It talks about what it means to have mental health difficulties and also provides you with further places where you and your family and carers can get more information or support.
