Mental health and wellbeing will be one of the three main focuses of the Welsh Youth Parliament over the next two years. The Members, all aged 12 to 18, voted to focus on:
- Our Mental Health and Wellbeing
- Climate and the Environment
- Education and the School Curriculum.
As the Parliament debated which key areas to prioritise in its programme of work, the Members also considered a nationwide poll of thousands of young people across Wales who had been asked what they think the Parliament should focus on.
The Members will now hold smaller group sessions to discuss their priorities over the coming months and consult with young people in their constituencies and partner organisations.
