Why become a Youth Mental Health First Aider/ Young People's Champion for Mental Health?

Since the pandemic, young people are experiencing evenmore distress and stress from a much earlier age and much sooner in life, than previous generations before them.

Facts and figures provdied by much needed survey's by mind and many other charities and organisations make the case, click on the link below for much needed support and this means supportive conversations about mental health in the community, at home and within schools/colleges/universities.

Young peope as young adults are ever so experiencing life changes and many still dealing with bottled up emotions and feelings of their rapid transition / trauma and change in life style, change in schooling, change in living and learning environments bought about by the pandemic. Social anxiety and social isolation is on the increase amongst young people and reducing social confidence and eroding communication, with young people becoming overly digitalised, that in the future may lead to a dis-benefit in a future work setting/engaging , collaborating with a wider audience.

Futhermore, many young people feeling the pain/despair of loosing aloved one, one or more grandparent/close blood relation at a earlier age in life as a result of the pandemic and feeling that void and gap in their personal lives at a very young age of not having a grandparent/adult family members in their lives to bounce and flourish of/enjoy that inter-generational learning/ empowerment/inspirational experience that lays the foudnations of healthy growth/parenting by parents and care givers during their childhood. Many may have never had the opportunity to be able to talk about their experiences and express their loss during the pendemic.
