Generation Next aims to provide education and information about the prevention and management of mental illness in young people to professionals, young people, their families and carers, and the wider community. Their objective is to raise community awareness of mental illness, its prevention and management through increasing mental health literacy, reducing associated stigma and discrimination, and positively influencing individual and community behaviour to improve mental, social and emotional wellbeing outcomes for young people, their families and communities.
To this end, Generation Next reaches out to young people, their families and carers, professionals who work with them and the wider community to seek solutions to the challenges that mental illness poses to us today both at the individual and societal levels.
