Common Ground for young people, whānau and friends

Whānau and friends play a vital role in supporting young people through challenging times in their lives. But often they don’t recognise the signs of an emerging mental health issue until a crisis point has been reached. Common Ground is a central hub providing parents, family, whānau and friends with easy access to information, tools and support to help a young person who’s struggling.

Common Ground features a series of videos exploring the challenges faced by young people in a fictional community. The series explores themes that are relevant to the mental health and wellbeing of young people, and are reflective of real life scenarios.

Common Ground was developed in collaboration with the Mental Health Foundation, Skylight and Youthline, with support from Curative and innovate change.
