Supporting mental health
We recognise the huge impact poor mental health has on young people in England and Wales, with social media, finding work and affording somewhere to live all contributing to increased pressure.
Across the country, YMCAs are providing mental health services to 17,000 young people each year, and together we actively campaign to fight mental health stigma.
