Welcome to our section of the site for children, young people and families. We've got loads of resources and you can find out what children really think about doctor's and healthcare, as well as telling us what your thoughts and getting involved with RCPCH.
During 2017, over 1000 children, young people and family members took part in sessions, challenge days, projects, consultations and events focused on key topics as outlined in the State of Child Health report. This is our summary report.
As a child or young person, you don't need superpowers! You have the right to be involved in decisions about your care and to be treated by the right people, at the right time, in the right place. It's all in our Facing the Future standards. Why don't you play our game, tell others about your rights or book a workshop?
This game, designed by Amina (aged 17) one of our Summer 2017 interns, enables a young person to pick the emoji cards that best represent how they are feeling, prompt them to discuss the topic and find out more information.
Based on the classic children's game, this game provides ‘Facts vs Myths’ surrounding the subject of mental health, which can enable a teacher/healthcare professional to facilitate a discussion regarding this issue.
