The theme of World Mental Health Day 2018 is "Young People and Mental Health in a Changing World", highlighting the need to focus on preventing and supporting mental illness in those from a young age.

We recognise that to have a lasting impact, change must be structural. We have always been told about the importance of physical health but not really about mental health. Sign the petition here.

Peer education: Let's help young people support one another and break down the stigma often associated with mental health by introducing a peer-led mental health programme in every school.
