#IAMWHOLE 2017

Mental health difficulties are costing young people their education, their employment prospects and without support, are costing them their lives. On World Mental Health Day, Tuesday 10 October 2017, and beyond #IAMWHOLE will continue to challenge the stigma that is stopping individuals speaking out and seeking help.

We’ve already started, but we must go further

With the backing of Nothing But Thieves, we aim to reach more young people, and are calling on individuals to stand together against negative stereotypes and language surrounding mental health. 

In 2016, #IAMWHOLE launched with support from the likes of Jordan Stephens (one half of UK band Rizzle Kicks), Ed Sheeran, James Cordon, Liam Gallagher and Dermot O’Leary. It reached millions of people across the UK, and around the world, with young people speaking out against stigma and seeking help. Watch last year’s video.

Support the campaign with your own #IAMWHOLE selfie

On Tuesday 10 October post your own #IAMWHOLE selfie or video, by picking a coloured pen that you feel reflects your current feelings or state of mind. Draw the #IAMWHOLE circle on your left hand and hold it up to the camera (landscape) and take a photo, or film yourself saying ‘I Am Whole’.

Donate to the campaign

Text ‘WHOLE’ to 70007 to donate £3 to YMCA today, alternatively donate online using BT MyDonate, and help us to continue to deliver mental health initiatives that change young lives.

Strengthen the circle of support available to young people by enabling YMCA to continue delivering the mental health initiatives that change and even save young lives. To find out more about the campaign email iamwhole@ymca.org.uk.
