In 2017, YMCAs across the UK launched the Body Confidence Toolkit for schools and gained national media coverage for the Be Real campaign
YMCA Scotland believes that there is a clear need for “safe spaces” to be created where young people can ask questions, access accurate information, engage in activities and get support to improve their wellbeing.
Mental health difficulties are costing young people their education, their employment prospects and without support, are costing them their lives. The NHS and YMCA responded with #IAMWHOLE.
#IAMWHOLE calls on individuals to stand together, united as a movement, against negative stereotypes and language surrounding mental health. The campaign encourages young people to speak out and seek help.
