Youth Mental Health Day
Today is #YouthMentalHealthDay.
After the events of the past 18 months and more, it is hardly surprising that mental health is affecting more and more young people than ever before. But even before the COVID-19 crisis, one in six young people aged 5-16-year olds reported suffering from a mental disorder.
Youth Mental Health Day encourages understanding and discussion of mental health in young people, enabling them to live happy and healthy lives all year round.
Each year, the day aims to get young people, and those who support them, talking about how to improve mental health.
