National Study of Health and Wellbeing: Children and Young People 2017
Thank you for participating in the 2017 National Study of Health and Wellbeing: Children and Young People.
This study looked at the health, development and wellbeing of children and young people aged 2-19 in England in 2017. The information collected helped the NHS, policy makers and charities to make the right decisions about services for children and young people.
We worked with the Office for National Statistics on this study, and were commissioned to do so by NHS Digital, with funding from the Department of Health and Social Care.
We asked about a range of topics to do with development and wellbeing. By asking about these topics we want to improve understanding of how different experiences can impact on health and wellbeing.
During 2017, our research team spoke to 9,000 children and young people and parents from across England.
What you told us will help inform and improve local and national health and support services and we are very grateful for your participation in that study.
An anonymised report on the findings from the 2017 study was published in 2018 and you can read about the findings at digital.nhs.uk/pubs/mhcypsurvey17.
