The Generation Next YouTube Channel is a FREE, open access resource on youth mental health for professionals working with young people, families and carers, young people and the wider community. It aims to increase mental health literacy and help-seeking behaviour in the community, tackle the stigma associated with mental illness, and improve the prevention and management of mental illness in young people.

The Channel makes the latest strategies and information in youth mental health available anywhere, anytime, providing useful tips to better support the young people in your lives. It includes expert interviews, lectures and short, educational videos on mental illnesses affecting young people, emerging issues as well as prevention and response strategies.
