On World Mental Health Day, find out about Adolescent Mental Health

The focus this year for World Mental Health Day is adolescent mental health and building resilience. ‘Resilience’ means developing the skills we need to deal with things we face in life better and is what makes us strong. It can include being able to talk about our feelings, knowing where to turn for help when we need it and including regular exercise in our day-to-day activities.

According to MHFA England: ‘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’.  To commemorate World Mental Health Day 2018. MHFA has launched a new set of resources for young people’s well being: the #HandsUp4HealthyMinds toolkit.
