World Mental Health Day

02 October 2018

World Mental Health Day takes place on 10 October every year. This year’s theme is ‘young people and mental health in a changing world’ and to mark the occasion, Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England is launching a new set of free resources designed to support young people aged 8 to 24.

The #HandsUp4HealthyMinds toolkit has been developed to empower anyone in contact with young people, including teachers, tutors and parents/carers, to better understand youth mental health and offer support. It includes guidance on self-care, stress and tips and further resources to support young people’s mental health.
