World Mental Health Day 2018 – Young People

The 10th October 2018 was World Mental Health Day and this year the theme was “Young People and Mental Health in a Changing World”, focusing on the different issues that young people are facing across the world today including topics such as:

  • Gender Identity
  • Cyberbullying
  • Suicide
  • Effects of Trauma

As Care in Mind are a provider of specialist mental health residential services for young people, we wanted to engage with our young people about what was important to them on this World Mental Health Day, so we asked them to share their own responses to the statement “I wish people knew…”

The responses we received were really powerful and inspiring!

Staff at our Head Office also got involved in World Mental Health Day by wearing green to show their support for raising awareness and reducing the stigma surrounding mental health today for young people.
