World Mental Health Day - Wednesday 10th October

World Mental Health Day is on 10th October 2018. This year’s focus is on young people and mental health in a changing world

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. 
In support of World Mental Health Day the community interest company Mental Health First Aid have launched a new set of resources for young people’s wellbeing: the #HandsUp4HealthyMinds toolkit. The toolkit includes facts about the mental health of young people as well tips for parents, schools and young people themselves to help support their mental health needs in a changing world. For more information about the toolkit go to
