Debating Mental Health is a programme for young people who have had mental health support in London.
Young people are learning debate skills through games, activities and discussion, so that they are equipped with the skills and knowledge to speak out about the big mental health topics.
Young people are taking part in the programme across 7 mental health services in London.
In April 2017, once all of our young people have received the same package of training, they will come together at Facebook’s UK headquarters to take part in a pan-London mental health debate. This will be an opportunity for young people to tell us what they really think on a number of big mental health topics (including social media, education and stigma) and to engage with mental health decision-makers and hold them to account.
