DO YOU KNOW ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH?
27% of NI young people experience mental ill health.
The Youth Mental Health Advisory Committee (NI Youth Forum, youth@clc and Belfast Youth Forum) are inviting 14 – 17 year olds across all areas of NI to participate in an online survey on young people’s awareness of mental health between January – March 2018.
WE WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU THINK…
- How much do you know about mental health?
- Are you comfortable talking about mental health?
- Is it easy for young people to get helpful information on mental health?
