This award's focus is the prevention of mental illness and promotion of mental health across the life course.
The finalists for the Public Mental Health & Wellbeing Award 2019 are:
With 1 in 12 young people self-harming and 1 in 8 presenting with an anxiety condition, the mental health of children and young people is a national concern. stem4 provides early intervention for 12-19 year olds, via clinically safe apps, which are free, accessible, co-collaboratively created, nationally and internationally.
Entered projects and programmes should demonstrate:
- A clear understanding of public mental health and wellbeing and the parity of esteem addressing both physical health and mental health
- A population approach to promoting mental health, preventing mental illness or suicide, or improving the lives of people with a mental illness
- The appropriate use of measures to evaluate mental health and wellbeing impact
Category winners have the opportunity to be selected for the prestigious Public Health Minister’s Award, while all finalists are considered for two special commendations given by Public Health England (PHE).
