Falling Through the Gaps: Improving Health Outcomes for Adolescents and Young Adults in Greater Manchester
Adolescents and young adults currently engage poorly with health and social care services, exacerbating health inequalities across Greater Manchester. How can we improve services to adolescents and young adults at scale to improve the health and wealth of young people in Greater Manchester?
As part of Policy Week 2015, policy makers and influencers are encouraged to contribute ideas about how to embed services for adolescents and young adults across Greater Manchester and how to make that attractive to commissioners.
This is an opportunity to understand the impact of the current problems facing adolescent and young adults in Greater Manchester, provide input and contribute to possible solutions so that there is greater clarity on preferred models that could be developed.
There will also be an opportunity to join the wider Working Group for this topic and get involved with this project longer term.
The event is free to attend but booking is essential. To register, visit the Policy Week website http://www.policy.manchester.ac.uk/week/
