Youth mental health rates in Northern Ireland dwarf those of anywhere else in the British Isles. This is not acceptable.
Founded in August 2019 by Jay Buntin and Matthew Taylor, Pure Mental’s goal is to improve mental health awareness and education in schools across Northern Ireland, with a strong focus on youth involvement and engagement.
We believe that young people need to have a say when it comes to their own mental health, and that their feedback and suggestions on how improvements can be made are key for any future budgets and legislation.
We work tirelessly with our peers, politicians and the wider public on a number of projects that we believe are essential and effective when it comes to mental health support and awareness for young people across Northern Ireland.
