In exploring the topic of youth mental health, we recently ran a poll to gain insight into why metal health isn’t taken seriously, possible outlets for service and support and what feature of adolescent & youth livelihood has the most impact. Participate TODAY! #VoiceMatters
We remain committed to ensuring that Jamaican youth, regardless of their diversity, are given equal & unimpeded access to platforms & spaces that enable them to express themselves, fulfill their right to participate, & engage in activities related to their needs and interests.
Suicide is a major global health concern and one of the leading causes of death worldwide. The Youth Suicidality Report (2014) has revealed that 61% of persons who have attempted suicide were under the age of 25. What are we doing as a country to address youth mental health? In an attempt to address the mental health of our youth, we are urging U-Reporters to use social media to bring awareness to this growing issue. Opt-in to our poll on suicide by sending the word MENTAL to U-Report Jamaica via FB Messenger or SMS - 1 (876) 838-4897 NOTE: Your participation in the poll is anonymous #VoiceMatters
