I AM WHOLE: A report investigating the stigma faced by young people experiencing mental health difficulties

YMCA, October 2016

The purpose of this research was to examine the stigma faced by young people experiencing mental health difficulties.  The challenges that young people face are not limited to the symptoms mental health difficulties; many must also take on the day-to-day stigma that too often goes with this.  By giving young people the platform to share their views and stories, I AM WHOLE seeks to go beyond the headline statistics to get under the surface and understand the real experiences of those with mental health difficulties.
