Barnet has just launched a large-scale Mental Health and Wellbeing Campaign for children and young people across the borough.

The campaign was co-produced by children and young people from conception to creation. The group of local young people are aged between 13 and 21. Young people were involved in focus groups to scripting, from filming and creating graphics to marketing plans for the launch event. The strapline - Don’t Hide Your Mind - Talk About It, sums up the aim of the campaign.
