Generation Next is currently developing a free app targeted at young people aged 15-25. The Generation Next app aims to improve mental health literacy, provide self-care strategies and promote help-seeking behaviours to help young people look after their mental health and prevent the onset of mental illness. It also aims to address the critical knowledge gap on mental health and supports available.
Once completed the Generation Next app will provide young people the opportunity to access information anonymously and in their preferred format, enabling them to easily locate information on looking after their own and their peers’ mental health, access crisis support, connect with their peers and keep track of their mental and emotional wellbeing. Unlike more specialised apps, the Generation Next will provide a continuously updated, comprehensive platform for young people to maintain and improve their mental health.
We’re currently in the development phase of this exciting initiative so more information will be available soon!
