This week, the global community came together to recognize international day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma - World Mental Health day.
The day addresses an issue that young people from migrant and refugee young people have highlighted multiple times and more so at MYAN Australia's national multicultural youth summit - FUSE.
