Minds That Matter

yd 2016 minds that matter

We are a group of young people who are passionate about changing mental health services for the better, for young people in the future. 

One in ten young people will suffer from a diagnosed mental health condition in their lifetime. We believe that by bringing public awareness to young people’s mental health through 'Minds that Matter' we can make a difference and improve the experience of tackling mental health for everyone. 

We want to take our campaign directly to the decision makers to highlight the increasing number of young people who need mental health support and that their needs are not being met. wp 20161007 13 46 13 pro 2 copy

Your stories are key to revealing the true realities many young people face and your ideas could make a real difference to young people's mental health services.

We decided that by bringing public awareness to young people’s mental health, we can make a difference and improve the experience of tackling mental health for everyone. Why is ‘Minds that Matter’ important to you?  “We want to get everyone to be comfortable with talking about their mental health so that we can all help each other.” Pheobe…
