MHE quiz: 7 things you should know about young people’s mental health

Mental Health Europe (MHE) is delighted to announce the launch of a quiz series 7 things you should know about young people’s mental health to mark International Youth Day on 12 August 2020.


In times of COVID-19 mental health has become more important than ever. The pandemic has impacted young people’s mental health in many ways. Therefore, it is vital to raise awareness and bust myths. Although one in five adolescents in Europe may experience at least one mental health problem in any given year they are less likely to seek help due to stigma and lack of awareness.


This needs to change. We hope this quiz will show you mental health problems are more common than you think and we can all be part of the solution.
