In 1999, the United Nations General Assembly declared August 12th as International Youth Day. Fast forward to “twenty fourteen,” a time when youths face complex issues across the social and digital spaces. To educate this key population, the UN declared this year’s theme, "Mental Health," to raise awareness on this important topic, as well as many others.
Start this important conversation with the young ones in your life, and encourage them to learn more about what youth do around the world to support the Red Cross/Red Crescent/Red Crystal Movement.
