BYS has collected self-reported mental health diagnoses and self-rated mental health data from everyone accessing ongoing planned support since 2015. We’ve analysed this data to compare demographic factors such as age, gender, cultural identities, sexuality, experience of disability, and parenthood.
Over 2,600 young people provided information about their disability status and mental health at intake. This factsheet summarises the mental health assessment data for young people with disability over the last 7 years.
