About this Project

"This app aims to raise awareness and reduce stigma of mental health."

Quote from project Leader:

"Im Katie Buckingham, aged 18 and I have created this app along with Andrew Soltan, aged 17, to provide information on mental health in an interactive and user friendly way. This app includes information on different mental health issues, a video, activities and support contacts.

Everyone has mental health, whether it be good or bad and the more we can talk about it and understand it, the more we can help those with mental health issues."

What is Mental Health?

How you think and feel about yourself, and your life, affects how you behave and how well you cope when times are tough. It affects your ability to make the most of the opportunities that come your way and play a full part in your family, workplace, community and among friends. Itís also closely linked with your physical health. Whether you call it well-being, emotional welfare or mental health, itís key to living a fulfilling life.

Multiple social, psychological (in your head), and biological (in your body) factors determine the level of mental health of a person at any point in time. Being mentally healthy doesnít just mean that you donít have a mental health problem. Mental health problems range from the worries we all experience as part of everyday life to serious long-term conditions.

How Widespread Is It?

  • 1 in 4 people will experience some kind of mental health problem in the course of a year.
  • 1 in 7 children and young people have a mental health issue
  • Rates of mental health problems among children increase as they reach adolescence.
  • 11.5% (about 510,000) young people aged between 11-16 years have a mental disorder.
  • 4.4% (about 195,000) young people have an anxiety disorder.
  • Nearly 80,000 children and young people suffer from severe depression.
  • Self-harm statistics for the UK show one of the highest rates in Europe (about 400 people in every 100,000 self-harm).
