This report highlights the findings from a consultation which was undertaken with specific groups of children and young people in order to inform the NHS Health Scotland draft framework for children and young people's mental health indicators.

The consultation project was carried out by researchers at the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships (CRFR) at the University of Edinburgh.

The project will contribute to the overall consultation process on the draft framework for children and young people's mental health indicators. It will inform the work by NHS Health Scotland to establish a comprehensive set of mental health indicators for children and young people aged under 18 years.
