A JSNA has been completed to assess the key health and wellbeing needs of young adults age 18-25. While health and social care service provision has often focussed on children, older people and the very unwell, there is an emerging consensus that the needs of young adults are not always fully understood or being met.
The key objectives of this JSNA are:
- To capture the unique health and wellbeing needs and issues affecting young adults age 18-25s.
- Identify the provision and gaps in provision of services for young people.
- To identify how to improve early interventions in issues which could affect people’s long term outcomes.
This JSNA has key chapters on primary and secondary care, eating disorders, care leavers, substance misuse, sexual health and the wider determinants of health.
