Supporting young people
At Mental Health UK we understand the growing need to support young people, with most long-term mental health problems beginning during adolescence.
75% of mental illnesses start before a persons 18th birthday.
Research has shown that providing early preventative support can help to avoid deterioration in a young person’s mental health and equip them for the challenges of everyday life.
That’s why we created our young people’s programme, Your Resilience. A UK-wide programme for 14-18 year olds which focuses on supporting and building mental health resilience.
