Putting Young People First

We’re committed to putting young people’s needs first and encouraging their active participation in the initiative. We believe the voices, perspectives, and experiences of young people, including young people with lived experience of mental health challenges, should be centred in all our activities, workstreams and objectives.

What We’re Doing

We fund research and innovation in 13 priority countries to influence change in programming, research and policies related to young people’s mental wellbeing. What sets us apart? Our funding priorities are determined solely by local stakeholders. They help us understand young people’s mental health needs in each priority country through research, engaging with youth and other stakeholders, and fostering consensus. Our partners guide the approaches we support and where our funding goes. Together, we’re actively shaping this exciting work!
