On August 12, 2014, the World is celebrating International Youth Day. The theme this year is ‘Youth and Mental Health’. According to the United Nations, 20% of the world’s youth (ages 15 to 24) is experiencing a mental health condition. With a population of approximately 1.2 billion, that’s over 280 million young people from around the world. Despite the scope of this problem, and perhaps in part because of it, 4 out of 5 (80%) of these youth do not receive the care, treatment or services they need.
