Why is youth mental health advocacy important to you? In my country, seeking mental health support is still perceived as stigma. The depression ratio among youth is higher than ever. The perception of mental illness won’t change unless we act to change it.

I want to see increased awareness of mental health conditions, supporting vulnerable patients when needed, increased diagnosis and referral to trained mental health staff and addressing stigma.
