It's important that decision-making is influenced by young people because when recommendations are coming from the people who it's for it is more likely to make a difference. I think decision makers should know that young people need to eb told that bullying is actually a crime and when somebody is caught bullying they should be given type of proper punnishment to make sure they don't do it again.

As a Citizen Researcher for MH:2K in Birmingham I have gained presentation skills and more confidence in speaking in front of people. Youth mental health is an important topic because it's very common and can save a lot of young lives if people actually take some notice of it.
