Youth Mental Health Day is an awareness day that was established by an incredible charity called – Stem4, who aid teenagers and young adults in building a more positive mental health.
Stem4 aims to encourage understanding and awareness in ALL people but specifically aims their resources towards young people.
Today is the first youth mental health awareness day and today is focused on building resilience by bouncing back from challenges, no matter how big or small.
Stem4 campaign focuses on helping others to understand that anybody, however successful or seemly popular/happy they may appear at first glance, face hard challenges and can struggle with mental health. But no matter the challenges you are facing, you can always bounce back by finding a strategy/coping mechanism that suits and helps you.
Ever since our world was plagued by COVID-19, our need for resilience and finding the ability to bounce back has never felt greater or more important.
