About our campaign

Good mental health really matters for young people in Kent.

Many people are talking about the rising need for mental health support with many issues widely understood to have their roots in childhood. Around 75% of serious adult mental illness is caused by sustained anxiety, and 50% of such problems take root before the age of fourteen.

Good mental health matters

Girlguiding in Kent has teamed up with the NHS to help to provide a range of resources to support Good Mental Health.

These resources are free to use and also support the current badge scheme already in place.

Access helpful resources and information

I'm a leader

As a leader you can expand your own knowledge and support your young people in many ways with this scheme.

The main benefit is being able to download the resources to support your existing section programme!
