Have your say
Who we are – Have your Say are a group of young people aged 11 – 25 who try to improve mental health services for young people in Torbay.
What we do – We meet weekly and work on various projects to improve Mental Health Services, in particular CAMHS. We do lots of different fun things but some of the things we do are:
- Interview new staff at CAMHS
- Train staff at CAMHS
- Organise and attend events
- Give CAMHS suggestions as to how they can improve their service for young people
Our weekly sessions are really informal, with small numbers of young people. We think we’re a really friendly bunch and are always look forward to new people coming along to our group. During our sessions we have lots of conversations, take part in activities and work to improve services. We receive training as part of our group session, which we gain AQA’s for.
When and where
Every Tuesday 5pm – 7pm
Unit 7, Torquay Harbour
