From the Healthwatch Suffolk website:
Hello! We are here to listen to your experiences of health and social care services in Suffolk so that we can use your views to make services better. We also provide information and signposting to help you navigate the health and social care system and understand what to do when things go wrong.
We have the strength of the law behind us. It means that the people who run and pay for health and care services must respond to our concerns explaining what action they will take, or why they are not taking action. We get your voice heard where it matters; where decisions are made.
The website has information and patient reviews on many NHS services across Suffolk and is a useful Signposting tool.

What do young people in Suffolk think about their mental health and wellbeing? A pilot project to discover Mental Health and Wellbeing awareness at Thomas Gainsborough School Sudbury found that overall, pupils were dissatisfied with their PSHE lesson content and wanted the school to run mental health awareness workshops. The project was filmed and is available to view here
