It’s time to Just Talk about mental health in Hertfordshire

A new campaign is being launched to encourage young people in Hertfordshire to ‘Just Talk’ about their mental health.

With one in 10 children aged 5 to 16 having a significant mental health problem and 21 per cent of boys in Hertfordshire unable to identify healthy coping strategies when things are worrying them, helping young people to open up and get support is vital.

Making our vision a reality 

The growing health and social care needs of our population can only be met using the funding available if the NHS and social care services work together with you to achieve this.

We have identified four key challenges:

1. Living well and preventing ill-health

2. Transforming primary and community services

3. Improving urgent and hospital services

4. Providing health and care more efficiently and effectively
