Why This Matters
Being affected by mental health issues is not abnormal and many youths have experienced problems in coping.
1 in 7 adults have experienced a mood, anxiety or alcohol use disorder in their lifetime, with youths (18-34 years old) being of higher risk of experiencing so¹.
Despite the fact that many youths are facing mental health issues, 60% have a misconception that such issues are self-imposed and 50% are unwilling to live or work with people with mental health issues².
An inclusive and caring society where no one has to struggle with mental health alone.
