Government, major employers and national charities have endorsed the importance of attention and energy sharply focused on evidence-based programmes offering advice and help on youth mental health problems including depression, anxiety and stress. We believe there is a need to link complementary approaches to the promotion and protection of youth mental health through prevention and treatment.
