Youth Mental Health Day 19 September

Tuesday 19 September is Youth Mental Health Day, which encourages understanding and discussion of mental health in young people, enabling them to live happy and healthy lives all year round.

Each year, the day aims to get young people, and those who support them, talking about how to improve mental health. Get involved in this year’s Youth Mental Health Day (YMHD) and support stem4 in it’s mission to raise awareness and highlight the importance of early intervention in teenage mental health issues.

The theme for YMHD 2023 is #BeBrave

This year’s Youth Mental Health Day theme is #BeBrave. Whether it’s building confidence in facing difficult situations, building social confidence through learning to work together on team tasks, or learning to have the courage to fail by doing something new no matter what the outcome, being brave can mean something different to everyone.

By focusing on what it takes to be brave, the charity Stem4, who coordinate the day, hope to give young people the courage and confidence they need to achieve their goals and ambitions, and be the best version of themselves they can be.

There are so many different ways for you to get involved with this year’s Youth Mental Health Day. Explore all the ways in which you can #BeBrave and combat the stigma surrounding anxiety and mental health at Youth Mental Health Day
