The #IAMWHOLE campaign aims to encourage young people to challenge harmful language and negative stigma surrounding mental health and encourage others to speak out and seek help.

Mental health difficulties are costing young people their education, their employment prospects and without support, are costing them their lives. On World Mental Health Day 2016 the NHS and YMCA responded with #IAMWHOLE.

Mental health difficulties among children and young people are common, and can be both persistent and damaging.

#IAMWHOLE calls on individuals to stand together, united as a movement, against negative stereotypes and language surrounding mental health by challenging others and themselves about the words they use and learn more about the impact these stereotypes and insults can have.

The campaign now has a holding website and a dedicated Instagram and Facebook page where you can find information about mental health and also donate.

There are loads of ways you can help us show your support, no matter what your role is, whether it is something big or small, anything you can do to help us raise awareness of #IAMWHOLE will help us fight mental health difficulties.
