New survey from Mental Health America
Despite increased interest in addressing mental health among youth, Mental Health America (MHA) research has found that only 1 in 4 young people believe they can make a difference in the mental health of their communities. To empower young people to become agents of change, MHA developed the Youth Engagement Survey.
This survey focuses on filling the gap between interest and impact in mental health by developing “how-to” guides providing the necessary know-how, tools, and guidance to aid youth in their advocacy.
To create the most responsive resources, our survey is designed to identify the most pressing concerns, needs, and goals of young mental health advocates.
Based on feedback, MHA will create a guide to getting started in mental health advocacy using the formats and topics that are most resonant with survey respondents.
The survey closes on April 30th.
