'My Mental Health' Campaign

In 2019, with funding from Carers Trust, Northamptonshire Young Carers launched its ‘My Mental Health’ Campaign aiming to tackle the mental health inequalities faced by young carers and young adult carers.  Our MY Mental HealthSteering group of Young Adult Carers hopes to empower other young carers to promote their own interests and to educate stakeholders and services as to how they can improve resources and support. Our steering group is made up of Young Carers, Young Adult Carers and Former Carers, they have helped plan and launch the campaign at the Young Carers Awareness Day ‘My Mental Health’ event in January 2020, encouraging local services to pledge about their support for young carers.
