How Does Stigma Affect Youth Mental Health? Hear from our e-wellbeing Youth Ambassadors!

We all experience mental health in different ways, and there are many things that can impact a young person’s emotional wellbeing.

As part of the Self-Harm Learning Network, co-produced with Mind, we met with e-wellbeing Youth Ambassadors Jasmine and Phoebe to talk about youth mental health and how this can be experienced.

In this video we discuss how mental health can be affected by misconceptions, influenced by a lack of information and by the media, as well as the importance of having open, non-judgemental conversations with young people to break the stigma.
