World Mental Health Day on 10th October 2018 focused on young people and mental health in a changing world. In support we launched a new set of resources for young people’s wellbeing: the #HandsUp4HealthyMinds toolkit. We hope you find this toolkit helpful for supporting young people - not just on World Mental Health Day but all year round.
Mental ill health often starts in young adulthood. It’s vital that we give young people access to the support they need to grow up happy, healthy and resilient.
The #HandsUp4HealthyMinds toolkit is designed to give you a set of bitesize facts and tips on the mental health of young people aged 8-24. It’s filled with practical tips and downloadable content for parents, schools, colleges, universities, youth organisations and practitioners, as well as some self-care tips for young people themselves.
If you find the toolkit useful, please share it with friends, family, or colleagues, so we are all better equipped to support young people's mental health in a changing world.
