This comprehensive Mental Wellbeing Impact Assessment (MWIA) has been carried out by the Wales Health Impact Assessment Support Unit to identify the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and associated policy responses, on the mental wellbeing of young people aged 10-24 in Wales.

The report aims to provide evidence and learning to inform cross-sector policy and practice directed at pandemic recovery, future emergencies and improving population mental wellbeing for the long term.

The MWIA published today comprises:

  • Three infographics summarising the main findings
  • An Executive Summary
  • A Main Findings Report
  • A Technical Report (open in Acrobat for full functionality) (English only)

The report and all outputs can be accessed here.

On September 8th, Public Health Network Cymru will host a webinar where the findings of the MWIA will be presented and discussed. You can find out more and register here.
