The Young Campaigners Group have released a preview of their new film, ‘Open your mind’, as part of our You Need To Know campaign. The video is about the group’s experiences of writing a new charter to tell decision makers what they think needs to change to make mental health services for children and young people with autism better. The full film will be released in early 2011. Watch the film here.

The Young Campaigners Group is a group of young people aged 13-19 with autism who have experience of using mental health services in the UK. They’ve played a really important part in our You Need To Know campaign, which aims to make sure children with autism receive the right support from child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS). Several members of the group attended the campaign launch at the House of Commons, where they spoke about their experiences of CAMHS.

We’ll have a lot of exciting news from the group over the next few months. For all the latest news about the You Need To Know campaign and the Young Campaigners Group, follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
