Youth Mental Health Summit (Healthy Minds, Healthy Community)



The partnership is an early intervention, proactive and preventative strategy to address the emergence and prevalence of Mental Health issues amongst young people before the problem escalates without support into adulthood. The aim is to reduce and ultimately prevent youth suicide, bullying by those not aware of the consequences of mental illness and it will help to remove the stigma of mental illness and create a supportive and inclusive community. Up to 500 people will attend the annual Youth Mental Health Summit, hosted by SWC’s community partners, it will provide students and teachers with the skills, knowledge and resources to identify mental health issues. Schools create an Action Plan and set up Youth Action Groups within their schools to improve wellbeing at their school based on the concepts gained at the YMHS.
