MH:2K gives young people the chance to share their ideas and opinions as well as meet other young people who have and share share the same thoughts as them. As a Citizen Researcher I have gained confidence with meeting new people. Youth mental health is an important topic because many experiences in your youth will effect your mental health when you are older. Decision makers should know that mental health is a normal part of young people's lives we need to be taught more and have more support available.
