MH:2K National Recommendations

MH:2K is a powerful new model for engaging young people in conversations about mental health and emotional wellbeing in their local areas. Five diverse areas of England have hosted MH:2K to-date: Birmingham, Central Lancashire, North Tyneside, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire and Oldham.

MH:2K’s national recommendations highlight the key themes emerging from local areas for national attention and action. The recommendations are the work of 127 diverse young people who co-led the MH:2K project. They are based on engagement events run by these young people with over 3,400 of their peers.

Together, the recommendations paint a compelling picture of what a mentally healthy area would look like from young people’s perspectives. They are a vital contribution to the work of decision-makers and researchers, both nationally and locally.

Testimonials

"We’ve been involved in peer engagement work with Leaders Unlocked. The young leaders we worked with engaged with over 100 service users in custody. We have been so impressed with the work. We are engaging with the young adults as colleagues, and the fact that they are former service users is almost secondary. The most important thing is the high quality work they are delivering."
