Creating a campaign for mental health awareness

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


A Million Hands is a Community Impact campaign which reflects our ambition by 2018 to mobilise half a million people in support of four social issues chosen by young people. Our troop have picked Mental Well being as the issue to tackle. One in four people in the UK will experience mental health problems every year. Young people could help others to be more resilient.

Why is mental health so important? What can you do to take action on mental health? Could you (and a friend) speak to your school’s head teacher, or Parish Priest to campaign? What do you need to do that? Do you need a campaign poster? Or write a letter?
