Mental health problems affect about 1 in 10 children and young people, and 1 in 4 adults. Shocking research by the Mental Health Foundation has found that 50% of mental health problems are established by age 14 and 75% by aged 24! With high statistics concerning mental health, there needs to be clarity on what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide and what needs to be done in the workplace for mental health in a changing world.

The aim is to get a Mental Health First Aider in every workplace and school.
