World Mental Health DayPublished 10/10/2018
Today is World Mental Health Day – and to support Mental Health First Aid England in their bid to bring parity to our attitudes towards mental and physical health – we have worked with them to kick off their #HandsUp4HealthyMinds campaign.
Aiming to give adults – such as parents and teachers – the tools to support young people who may be experiencing mental ill health, the toolkit offers a range of advice, tips and recommendations for those wanting to start a positive mental health conversation.
Giving a young person the chance to open up about their mental health can be the first step to seeking support. Our #HandsUp4HealthyMind tips for talking to young people can help you start the conversation: https://t.co/4L8YPGfmnH #WMHD18 pic.twitter.com/zON30ayv8C

In order to bring the toolkit to life, we worked with renowned mental heath campaigner Natasha Devon to create a list piece that today we have seen appear throughout the country. Entitled ‘6 tips for talking to young people about their mental health’ – it’s great to see this piece picked up across the country.
As our hashtag #HandsUp4MentalHealth trends on Twitter today – we are so proud again to be part of this future-thinking mental health conversation.
