The Director of Public Health is required to produce an annual report on the health and wellbeing of their population highlighting key issues.
This year's 2017/18 Public Health Annual Report (PHAR) has been produced as a short film which explores the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people and the services and resources which are available to support them.
The film recognises the importance of building resilience, promoting good mental health and wellbeing and enabling children and young people to grow up happy and healthy.
The report also covers key facts and figures and highlights a number of recommendations for implementation during 2018/19.

Updated recommendations from the Sefton PHAR 2016/17 and PHARs from previous years are listed below:
