We’ve gone through all the responses from our stall at the Young Carers Festival and there are some consistent and strong messages from the young people that attended:
“Caring is not easy but we want to do it”
“We don’t want sympathy, but we do want support to deal with the issues”
“Mental health is hidden and this makes it harder to deal with”
“We are not faking it and using it as an excuse to avoid things”
Thank you to everyone who took the time to meet with us and let us know their thoughts and feelings.
