An ambitious Island-wide project to understand the mental health needs, experiences and views of young Islanders has been launched.
Isle of Wight Youth Trust
The Isle of Wight Youth Trust is a local charity dedicated to supporting children and young people on the Isle of Wight.
The charity was formed in 1984 by the late Dr Christine Baksi to provide support for under-25s whose needs were not being met by the services of the time.
They are an independent organisation made up of a professional and passionate team dedicated to creating the best outcomes for the children and young people on the Isle of Wight.
Head of the Isle of Wight Youth Trust welcomes the change in law adding that she believes there has been a lot of under-reporting in the past.
