Mental health statistics for children and young people in the country have shown that:
▪ 20% of adolescents may experience a mental health problem in any given year.
▪ 50% of mental health problems are established by age 14 and 75% by age 24.
▪ 10% of children and young people (aged 5-16 years) have a clinically diagnosable mental problem, yet 70% of children and adolescents who experience mental health problems have not had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age (Mental Health Foundation, 2018).
As a fresh graduate recently employed in the public health department of your borough, you were asked to design and execute a Health Promotion campaign aimed at raising awareness of Mental Health in children and young people under 24 years of age.

Question 1: Using the given case study:
Critically appraise the key/relevant theories and concepts that will inform your health promotion approaches aimed at raising awareness of Mental Health among children and young people under 24 years of age.

Further guidance:
a) Clarify their local borough of choice and make use of relevant statistics and information on Mental Health among children and young people from your chosen borough.
b) Identify and critically evaluate at least two relevant health promotion theories you are familiar with.
c) Plan and discuss the Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Strategies you will employ to help create the most impact in helping to reduce Mental Health among children and young people.
