One in four people will need mental health care in their lifetime globally. Sadly, 75% of all mental health disorders develop by the age of 25.


According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), more and more people every year are realising the importance of mental health and promoting positive mental health practice on a daily basis.


But we can still do better.


The Youth-Led Solutions: Mental Health & Wellbeing Summit is about empowering young people to learn, connect and be inspired to keep their own wellbeing, and the wellbeing of the world, front and centre. Don’t miss our three-hour virtual summit of panel discussions, presentations and interactive demonstrations on mental wellness.
