The main goal of the March for Youth Mental Health will be to raise awareness about youth mental health disorders when gathering people together to work together to end the stigma around mental health disorders in youth. The March for Youth Mental Health will also work to push government bodies to do more in their support for providing resources for the youth who need it and create policies that will help youth and their mental health for years to come.
