Build your mental health literacy

Teach mental health (ages 12-19)

Approximately 1 in 5 youth worldwide will experience a mental illness before they turn 25. Many will experience significant and substantial life challenges that may require help. This makes adolescence a critical time for mental health promotion, prevention, early identification and intervention.

Schools are the ideal place to address mental health literacy as most youth attend school and the average teen spends over thirty hours per week in the classroom. The resources on this website are based on the best available evidence to help educators address youth mental health in a freely accessible and effective way.
