Mental ill health is the number one health issue facing young people worldwide. It is the leading cause of disability in those aged between 10 and 24 years, contributing 45% of the overall burden of disease. Most mental illnesses emerge in adolescence and early adulthood, with this period being the critical time for interventions and support for young people facing difficult times. There is a powerful social and economic case for additional efforts to improve youth mental health service provision across all countries.
