GOS- Parent/Carer Experience Forum

GOS mental health studyThis forum is part of a national study focussing on the mental health needs of children and young people with 22q11DS. The aim of the study is to improve the information and access to care and support available to children and young people with 22q11DS. We are really keen to hear your views so that we can try to improve services for other children and young people in the future.

The research team are based at Great Ormond Street Hospital with collaborators at the Maudsley Hospital. Max Appeal is helping to run this part of the study.

Invitation to Join the Parent/Carer Experience Forum -NOW CLOSED!!!!

We would like to find out about the needs and experiences of children and young people born between 1990 and 2004 and their families regarding mental health and developmental difficulties from the perspective of parents and carers.

We need your help to do this. We want to know about the services you have received, how you have found these services, any barriers to accessing services, and what you have found helpful.
