NI Commissioner for Children

 As part of their review of mental health services for children and young people, the NI Commissioner for Children and Young People (NICCY) would like all 11 – 21 year-olds to share their experiences of having sought or gained help in this area.

We have asked our pupils to go to www.niccy.org/SpeakYourMind to view the survey and complete it if they can.

Permission from parents/guardians is required, and further information is available at that address. The purpose of the survey is to help NICCY inform government on how to improve services.
