One in ten children aged 5 to 16 has a significant mental health problem.

The campaign aims to help young people to open up and get support, showing that it's OK to not be OK and everyone should #JustTalk about mental health.

We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. 

A new Hertfordshire campaign aims to make it easier for all of us to talk about our mental health and seek help when it's needed.

At the moment 70% of boys and 72% of girls in Hertfordshire think it’s OK to talk about their mental health.  We need to make it 100%.

Please share your tips for good emotional wellbeing and mental health on socials, using #JustTalk
