G7 Letter of support for youth mental health

MHE is pleased to support and sign the Global Coalition on Youth Mental Health ‘Letter of Support to G7 Leadership’ to make mental health a priority worldwide. 

Canada will host the G7 Leaders’ Summit in 2018,focusing on five official themes:

  1. Investing in growth that works for everyone
  2. Preparing for jobs of the future
  3. Advancing gender equality and women’s empowerment
  4. Working together on climate change, oceans, and clean energy
  5. Building a more peaceful and secure world

The letter calls for  a sustained G7 commitment to address the impacts of mental ill health on youth around the world.

Mental health, particularly youth mental health, is inextricably linked with the G7 official themes this year. Yet, G7 leaders have not yet focused on mental health as a global priority.
