Youth Mental Health Framework launch
This week, the Forum and Orygen jointly launched the Global Framework for Youth Mental Health in a virtual event that included over 500 participants from around the world.
According to Patrick McGorry, Executive Director of Orygen, young people are facing a 25-30% surge in terms of risk for mental ill-health given the economic fallout underway as the result of the pandemic.
Panellists Daniel Andrews, Premier of Victoria, Australia; Lee Howell, Managing Director, World Economic Forum; Charlotte Petri Gornitzka, Deputy Executive Director, UNICEF; and young people including the Forum's Global Shapers community shared a key message: now is the time to invest in youth mental health.
