Calderdale Youth Council and the Tough Times Reference Group have devised a survey on Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing to gather information about the experience of mental health and emotional wellbeing for children and young people aged 5 – 19 (up to 25 for those with learning difficulties or disability) in Calderdale.
The information we gather will be shared with Commissioners and Service Providers so we can influence services to make positive changes that will help children and young people in Calderdale.
We need as many children and young people in Calderdale to complete this survey as possible and therefore are asking for your help. Please can you share this link or QR code with children and young people and help them to complete this survey. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CalderdaleCYPMentalHealthSurvey
The survey will close at 5:00pm on Friday 15 February.

Unique Ways is hosting a FREE course on Parenting for Healthy Emotional Wellbeing on Saturday, 19 January 2019, 10:00am-3:00pm at their offices in Hanson Lane Enterprise Centre, Halifax HX1 5PG.
Our Parenting for Health and Emotional Wellbeing (PHEW) course is for parents and carers of 11 to 18-year-olds with additional needs.
We don’t have all the answers about what’s best for your child – after all, you’re the one who knows them best.
The aim of the course is to share tools, ideas and insight that will help you to recognise and improve the mental health and wellbeing of your young person. It is then up to you how to best use this information to support your young person, and if you believe that your young person needs further professional support then we’ll be able to point you in the right direction.
You may have seen in the news that the the Personal Child Health Record “red book”, containing your child’s health information is to be made available to parents online, as part of government plans to improve NHS care for mothers and new babies.

Potential benefits for parents include:
- access to information so that health and care choices can be made
- an online record of their child’s health and development
- ownership of the wellbeing of their child through links to guidance on healthy choices and *preventing avoidable poor health
- the ability to share their health and wellbeing information with professionals
- being able to set preferences for information sharing and to see who subscribes to this information
