This document is for decision-makers, service providers and practitioners whose work impacts on children and young people's emotional and mental health and well-being. It features practice that explicitly addresses gender as a relevant factor in such work.
Examples include a project involving young women in tackling violence against women and girls; a popular magazine aimed at opening up conversations about young men’s mental health; and support groups for trans young people.
This is part of a range of resources exploring children and young people’s mental health from a gender perspective, which also includes an evidence review and findings from engagement with young people. The resources aim to inform understanding of, and responses to, children and young people’s different experiences, coping strategies and help-seeking behaviours.
