It’s estimated that worldwide there are 970 million people with a mental health or substance use disorder and that 75% of all mental health disorders start before the age of 25.

Across the word all cultures value their young people and desire to see them reach their full potential. Mental ill-heath threatens the realisation of this potential, however evidence-based early intervention can minimise the impact and change a young person’s recovery trajectory. This video and infographic outline the value of early intervention in mental health for young people and society as a whole.
