Help improve mental health services in the city with this short survey

As part of Portsmouth City Council’s Improving Mental Health project, Health and Care Portsmouth is keen to hear the experiences of 16-25-year-olds who’ve recently accessed - or tried to access - mental health support in Portsmouth.  The survey is open until Tuesday 31 May and takes less than five minutes to complete

Take the survey now 

Your feedback will help to create new ways of working based on the experience of people in our community and their needs.

They’re especially keen to hear from students who:

  • Have tried accessing adult mental health services but didn't meet the criteria
  • Are accessing mental health support for the first time as an adult
  • Have recently moved from Children and Adolescent Mental Health services (CAMHS) to an adult mental health service

You can choose to share their experience anonymously or share their details and continue to help improve mental health support in Portsmouth.
