Speakers for Schools launches youth mental health campaign

Leading social mobility charity Speakers for Schools is launching a national campaign today (22nd November), to normalise conversations around mental health, empowering young people to feel confident in taking charge of their wellbeing.

The campaign, called Work/Life, will deliver a programme of talks from 37 high-profile speakers to schools across the country, ranging from leaders in the mental health sector through to Peers and actors who have struggled with mental health issues.

This follows YouGov polling of over 2,000 young people commissioned by Speakers for Schools this summer finding that mental health support and counselling was the most crucial tool for helping them recover post-Covid-19, particularly amongst 18-19 year olds who would’ve been starting university, an apprenticeship or searching for a job
