Website to improve mental health care for young adults
The Mental Health Foundation has today launched a new website aimed at allowing young people between the ages of 16 and 25 to have their say about the state of mental health care.

The charity hopes that the SpeakUp! site, which will enable people to talk to each other about mental health services, as well as professionals and carers, will help to improve mental health provision across the UK.

SpeakUp! is being launched after a study by the Mental Health Foundation found that many people in the 16 to 25 age range were being missed by tailored care plans and their problems only detected after becoming much more severe.

Andrew McCulloch, Chief Executive of the Mental Health Foundation, says:
"We hope that Speak Up! will provide a contribution to the debate about how mental health services in the UK engage young people. Children and Adolescent Mental Health services are developing rapidly, yet they do not seem to be structured in a way that engages this age group.

“We hope this project will open up communication between young people and mental health professionals and that people will use this opportunity to engage with each other in the sharing of experience and ideas.”

Log onto www.speak-up.org.uk for more information.
