Treat Mental Health Right

1 in 10 young people now live with a mental illness. 75% of these illnesses develop before the average age for graduation. 61% of UK universities have seen demand for counselling increase by more than a quarter. Young people's mental health services are underfunded and stretched to breaking point.

This isn't good enough. Young people and students deserve better.

The Young Liberals are campaigning for:

  • Better funding for early intervention services
  • Parity for mental and physical health
  • Better treatment for addiction
  • Ending detainment of those with mental health disorders
  • Increased mental health training at schools
