MH:2K - A youth-led approach to mental health: May-October 2018

MH:2K is a new youth-led approach to exploring mental health and emotional wellbeing in Birmingham, to identify the issues they see as important.

The model empowers young people to work with local decision-makers to create a picture of the mental health challenges faced by children and young people, and what the solutions could look like.

To help do this, the CCG commissioned Involve, a national charity, and Leaders Unlocked, a social enterprise. In partnership, they trained 26 young people as Citizens Researchers, who then reached out to their peers to start a conversation about mental health.
