YMCA England’s Mental Health Campaign

The YMCA England launched a national campaign in partnership with the National Health Services (NHS) of England. The action is focused on young people’s mental health.

“Growing up can be a positive time for many. However, there are hundreds of thousands of young people across England and Wales for whom the experience is very different.

Mental health difficulties among children and young people are common, and can be both persistent and damaging. Also damaging is the stigma associated with mental health difficulties that manifests itself in a series of ways and impacts even further on the wellbeing young people in need of support.

The #IAMWHOLE campaign is a partnership between YMCA and NHS, born at YMCA’s Right Here project in Brighton. It is fronted by music star Jordan Stephens (Rizzle Kicks) and aims to tackle the problem of stigma in a series of ways.”
