The National Youth Mental Health Task Force was established in response to an undertaking in the Programme for a Partnership Government to provide national leadership in the field of youth mental health and to enhance how the public, private, voluntary and community sectors work together to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people.
The main areas of focus (as outlined in the terms of reference) are:
emotional literacy and reduction of stigma
awareness of services and supports
accessibility to services and supports across different settings
alignment of services and supports across different providers
building capacity in local communities
