Your Mind Matters aims to better understand the unique mental health and wellbeing challenges experienced by children and young people in Armed Forces families.

Children and young people from serving personnel and veteran families across Scotland are encouraged to get involved and develop a mental health support service in the form of a digital platform.

Their experiences, thoughts and opinions will help RCET and SAMH develop a better understanding of the difficulties experienced by Armed Forces families. In turn, this will ensure the digital platform is tailored to children and young people’s needs and responds effectively to these unique challenges.
