ENYA 2018’s theme was mental health.
Children and young people have the right to the best health possible, and that includes mental health— but around Europe they often find they’re not getting the support they need.
In the Commissioner’s office, we worked with a group of young people to develop two recommendations on what should change so that young people’s mental health can be better supported in Scotland.
Young people then travelled to Barcelona to discuss these recommendations with their peers from across Europe.
In this video, the young people we worked with explain their recommendations:
ENYA and the ENOC Conference
In June we supported two of our ENYA advisers – Holly and Fergus – to travel to Barcelona to share Scotland’s recommendations with young people from across Europe.
In September 2018, Bruce and members of our office went to the ENOC conference to discuss recommendations on what needs to change around mental health support for young people across Europe.
Clara Gray, one of Scotland’s representatives in ENYA, came with us so she could join other young people in holding Europe’s Children’s Commissioners to account.
