International Youth Day, In the News, and Enjoy

International Youth Day - Today is International Youth Day!

On 17 December 1999, in its resolution 54/120, the United Nations General Assembly endorsed the recommendation made by the World Conference of Ministers Responsible for Youth (Lisbon, 8-12 August 1998) that 12 August be declared International Youth Day.

The theme of International Youth Day 2014 is "Youth and Mental Health."

Youth with mental health conditions can often experience stigma and discrimination. This may lead to exclusion and/or discourage people from seeking help for fear of being negatively labelled.

The 2014 observance of International Youth Day will raise awareness on this important topic.
