The vision of the International Declaration is that every young person with mental health problems gets the help they need when and where they need it. Inspire Ireland are delighted to have contributed to this declaration. The declaration highlights the importance of changing the way we think about youth mental health in keeping with innovative services like ReachOut.com

How did the declaration come about
The International Declaration on Youth Mental Health evolved from the Youth Mental Health Summit which took place in Killarney in 2010. The Summit provided a forum for 80 young people, family members, clinicians, researchers and policy makers to share practice innovation and research in the field of youth mental and to discuss and debate the content of this declaration.

What does the declaration mean
The International Declaration on Youth Mental Health articulates core principles and targets for youth mental health service provision. It aims to influence how people think about and respond to young people’s mental health needs. It will be used to leverage support for the development of timely and appropriate youth mental health services internationally. The Declaration sets out a range of measurable targets that can be achieved over a ten year period.

Inspire Ireland is very proud to be involved in the development of such a visionary declaration and are pleased to be hosting the declaration online.
