Youth mental health charity stem4 launch the UK’s first Youth Mental Health Day – Bounce Not Break – a campaign to develop resilience

#BounceNotBreak Youth mental health charity @stem4org launch the UK’s first Youth Mental Health Day #YMHD on September 7 – with Bounce Not Break – a campaign to develop resilience.

Dr Nihara Krause, Consultant Clinical Psychologist and founder of stem4 says:

“We need to teach our young people resilience during these challenging times as well as develop a resiliency framework to support them. Pre-Covid-19 1 in 8 children between the age of five and 19 had mental health problems. Post-Covid-19 I’m afraid this will be much, much higher.”

YMHD is timed to support young people as they return to school, college and university amid the huge uncertainty and anxiety that living with Covid-19 brings. stem4 will release a short film, which includes resilience tips from comedian Josh Widecombe, Southampton FC footballer, Oriol Romeu, Summerland and child actor, Lucas Bond and former professional footballer, Luke Chadwick.
