Seventy-five percent of mental illnesses begin before the age of 25, affecting young people’s development and ability to participate in and contribute effectively to society. The agency of young people who make up 75% of the population can be leveraged by equipping them with mental health education, leadership skills, and life skills to be social actors in the attainment of the SDGs by driving mental health advocacy and implementing community change projects.
