EH4MH supports young people by providing an awareness of mental health and support for those experiencing it. The aim is to provide far reaching support and contribute to Devon’s children and young people developing and sustaining positive mental health.
Positive mental health is the foundation on which we as individuals, can live healthier lives. With positive mental health we are more likely to be motivated and engaged in our learning, realise and achieve our potential, choose healthier lifestyles, engage in all the world has to offer, shout out when abuse is occurring, seek help when times are tough and recover a sense of wellbeing and achievement following traumatic experiences.
