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.
Despite increased awareness and recognition, young people all over the UK and Ireland are
still subjected to stigma as a result of the mental health difficulties they are experiencing.
This stigma is exacerbating the challenges associated with mental health difficulties,
negatively impacting young people’s confidence, their education and employment
prospects, their willingness to speak out about their problems and, critically, their
willingness to access professional support.
