Involve and Leaders Unlocked have opened a call for local areas to host our flagship youth mental programme, MH:2K, in 2019.

Read more about the opportunity.


What is MH:2K?

MH:2K is a powerful new model for engaging young people in conversations about mental health in their local area.

Young people have a unique and vital perspective on their mental health – the challenges they face, information they need, and what is and isn’t working for them.

Through MH:2K we enable local areas to harness young people’s experiences and views. Decision-makers gain a deeper understanding of mental health issues in their area and new insights about effective solutions for prevention, support and services. They are empowered to better serve the diversity of your youth populations.

How does it work and is my area suitable?

MH:2K follows a tried and tested six step model. Read more here.

We piloted the model in Oldham in 2016-17. Following its success we then ran it successfully in four more areas in 2017-18: Birmingham, Central Lancashire, North Tyneside, and Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

MH:2K is adaptable to areas of different sizes, geographies and demographics. It has been commissioned by local councils and local clinical commissioning groups and to inform the work of Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships.

How do I find out more?

We have created a brief summary of the project, how it works, its impact and evaluation to date.
