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.
