Don’t Do It Alone – support for children and young people’s mental health

Posted on Updated on

To kick off Children’s Mental Health Week, Kooth has launched their latest social media campaign: Don’t Do It Alone.

This campaign aims to reduce the stigma around accessing mental health support, as social media stars Chunkz, Amelia Dimz, Riyadh Khalaf, Jax Jones, and Joy Crookes talk about the things they do alone, and how dealing with mental health is not one of them.

With a feature in the Metro, this campaign is something we’d like to spread the word about to all young people across the North West and the rest of the UK.

We invite you to check out the campaign video here. Please do share this with any young people you work with.

For extra resources, you can check out the campaign resources page here. This includes handy guides on talking to young people about mental health, social media images and copy, and some Kooth promotional materials.

Remember you can book a session with Kooth at absolutely any time, whether it’s Kooth training for staff or to speak directly with your young people about the mental health and wellbeing support our service can offer them.

Please find the 2021 programme of Kooth sessions below, which you can request to book anything from emailing Ophelia Murphy (she/her) omurphy@kooth.com.

Thank you for checking out the Don’t Do It Alone campaign, the more we share this message out the more we can normalise mental health conversations with young people.
