The issue of youth mental health, and specifically young men’s mental health, is a complex societal, cultural, family, community and individual challenge. It is not simply addressed with new or different services, through schools, families or workplaces or with a focus on just the individual.
This report on young men provides data that can be used by the youth and mental health sectors, policy–makers and professional bodies to enact change to address the real needs of young men in a way that is engaging, supportive and empowering.
