Our minds matter

Our Minds Matter framework

This framework recognises that children and young people need support from good, broad pastoral care around them and a means of support if they experience difficulties. The responsibility for children and young people’s health lies with the wide range of supporters around them – families, friends and professionals.  As such the audience for this framework is all partners involved in supporting young people’s mental and emotional wellbeing.

The framework aims to give focus to services for children and young people to clarify who is involved in this support, what it looks like at different levels and to encourage integration and sharing of approaches.
