Health chiefs in Leeds have approved a plan to combat mental health problems among the city’s young people.

A meeting of Leeds City Council’s Health and Wellbeing Board heard about NHS and council plans to help tackle health inequalities and provide extra support over the next five years for young people who suffer from mental health problems in the city.

The Future in Mind strategy sets out how services will work together to improve the emotional and mental health, from birth to 25 years old.

Leeds NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) said it wanted to “strengthen young people’s experience of transition into adulthood”, adding it would “strengthen and develop the city’s response to children and young people who have experienced trauma”.

Lanre Adeleye, ambassador for NHS MindMate, said: “I think it’s extremely important that young people’s voices are heard when it comes to social-emotional wellbeing. Especially with the pandemic, it’s important we address this issue head-on and the way this plan has been co-created with young people is one of many steps forward we are making to address the mental health of young people.

“Over the past year, one thing coronavirus has taught us is that mental health is very important and that we need to ensure that vulnerable children and young people have the right access to support in our city.”
