Mental health matters.

Teens Unite marked World Mental Health Day on 10th October with the launch of a new campaign - 'The impacts of cancer are not always visible'. 

Medically overcoming cancer is just part of the struggle they face; the mental health implications last long after treatment has come to an end. Following cancer treatment, 75% of young people will experience a serious mental health problem, with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD and loneliness known to be common after effects. 

Teens Unite is a community where everyone shares similar experiences, emotions, thoughts and feelings. It's a safe space where the young people can speak openly if they wish to, but sometimes just knowing you're not alone is enough. 

Our support makes a difference to the mental wellbeing of the young people we support. After attending our activities, 100% of young people felt better connected and less alone, 88% felt less anxious, and 83% had a more positive outlook on life. 

Our new campaign will ensure more young people find the support from Teens Unite they need, and that as a society, we acknolwedge the ongoing challenges these young people face, even once treatment has come to an end. We'll be giving young people a voice, and over the coming weeks, they will show the reality of living with and beyond their diagnosis, by sharing the invisible effects of cancer, which consume their lives every day.
