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

"The work of Leaders Unlocked and the Youth Panel is really embedded in our organisation now. There is a lot of trust and respect for them and we don’t shy away from bringing them into difficult situations. This is testament to the methodology, the diversity of the panel and the process they go through, which means they function to a really high level."
