UNMUTE Mental Health
Youth Mental Health Campaign 2022
UNICEF Lebanon and the National Mental Health Programme in the MoPH are launching a social media campaign that addresses mental health issues that youth in Lebanon are facing in the current crisis.
The main call for action is to “unmute mental health” and ask for support from friends, family, or by calling the national mental health hotline. In addition to this call for action, the campaign provides tips on mental health and share insights into health coping mechanisms.
The primary objective of the campaign is to increase awareness on what can be done to protect mental health within youth's circle of control, while acknowledging things that need to be addressed and that are not within their direct control. The impact of the campaign is to increase the knowledge of youth on what can be done, by them as individuals as well as by their caregivers, to protect their mental health.
