The Youth Voice Report: Five big ideas on how to promote mental healthJan 24, 2020 | Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental Health, The Jed Foundation
The Youth Voice Report is an appeal to decision-makers on campuses of how to best promote youth mental health based on research, hard-evidence, and the lived experience of young people.
This report aims to answer the following questions:
- What causes mental health struggle among young people?
- What are barriers to help-seeking?
- How do individual campuses support student mental health?
- What can campuses do to better promote youth mental health?
This webinar takes a deep dive into the recommendations made in the report and the process by which they were developed. This includes learnings from the Campus Assessment Tool pilot, a participatory research project that saw students assess their campus mental health systems and understand/address their associated strengths and gaps.
