Healthwatch Wiltshire is looking for more young people to help them review online mental health services in the county.
They would like people aged 16-25 to take part in their mystery shop focusing on what’s good and what could be improved about mental health support available locally for young people.
Julie Brown, Acting Healthwatch Wiltshire Manager, said:
“We’re asking young people to help us with this project so we can understand how well online mental health support works for them and what changes they would like to see. Anyone can be a mystery shopper, but we’d particularly like to hear from young men, and members of the LGBTQ+ and BAME communities, so we can get their perspectives on these services.
Sharing your views can make a real impact on how these services are developed, and even if you can only spare a small amount of time, your feedback will be invaluable in ensuring young people’s voices are heard.”
