We’re calling on decision-makers in our local health systems to take the #MyRightsMyMind pledge – promising to build new solutions to the mental health crisis using our human rights.
Finally, the government has committed billions of pounds to help tackle the youth mental health crisis.
Right now, decision-makers at local level are planning how to use these new funds. They could choose to patch up old, broken systems. Or they could totally transform mental healthcare for young people.
We know that business as usual won’t fix this crisis. It’s time for a new approach. It’s time to stand up for our rights.
An approach to mental health based on our human rights says we’re entitled to:
The mental health system isn’t just letting young people down, it’s failing to meet our rights.
So let’s tell decision-makers in every local area around the country to shift their focus from budgets, tick boxes and hollow targets and focus on our rights.
Add your name to the petition and opt in to emails to stay in touch as we ramp up the pressure in local areas around the country.
