For this campaign, we partnered with Fastn and Leaders Unlocked to talk to young people about healthy relationships; what's important, how they recognise, build and maintain healthy relationships, and how relationships impact mental health.
Our conversations spanned friend, romantic and family relationships. Our research found that being socially connected to family, friends, or our local community can help us to feel happy, physically healthier and improve our wellbeing. But it’s not just having any social connections that are important, it’s about the quality of these relationships. Having strong, stable and fulfilling relationships help tackle feelings of loneliness, isolation and improve our mental health.
