Involving young people in shaping research, practice and policy in youth mental health –

Involving young people in shaping research, practice and policy in youth mental health – | The Word in the Web | Scoop.it
Many thanks to Associate Professor Jane Burns, CEO, Young and Well Cooperative Research Centre for the following reminder as to why it is essential to engage young people in planning services for youth mental health.
Mighty Rasing's insight:

"The world of technology – and especially the world of technology that a young person engages with – moves very quickly. Parents, teachers and other professionals who work with young people can barely keep pace with its uptake. Research relating to young people and their technology use is invariably out of date before it is published. If researchers and service providers are failing to keep pace, what hope do policy makers have?"

Yet in a structure shrouded with the miasma of authoritarianism, being obscure rather than obtrusive might allow starters survive.
Mighty Rasing's insight:

Even Chinese young people are finding it difficult to handle the pressures that comes with living as a young person. 


"One of Mao Zedong's lines is often cited in China, "Young people are the rising sun at eight and nine o'clock." However, their present sunshine is being clouded by the bleak reality."

Classroom shortage to keep 4.6 M youths out of school | Headlines, News, The Philippine Star | philstar.com | The Word in the Web | Scoop.it
Some 4.6 million youths would not be able to enroll in high school this school year due to the shortage of classrooms, particularly in rural areas, a party-list lawmaker disclosed yesterday.
Mighty Rasing's insight:

This number is almost 5 Million!! And they can't go to school because of lack of classrooms? Tsk!

 

Perhaps the government alone cannot deal with this. It calls for creative approaches in solving the problem.

HR Magazine - Global Entrepreneurship Week: Young people must develop an 'employ yourself' attitude

HR Magazine - Global Entrepreneurship Week: Young people must develop an 'employ yourself' attitude | The Word in the Web | Scoop.it

UK entrepreneurs have made a call for young people to develop an 'employ yourself' attitude, starting up their own business rather than trying to get a job when faced with high youth unemployment and university fees.
At the beginning of Global Entrepreneurship Week, a study by Youth Business International (YBI), The Future Gazing Report, found that half of respondents believe starting up your own business is already a more viable career choice for young people than entering the traditional job market.

Stark unemployment figures represent a much broader, depressing reality than
just the state of the economy.
Mighty Rasing's insight:

"Stark unemployment figures represent a much broader, depressing reality than just the state of the economy. They also show academic qualifications that no longer hold value, a lack of decent housing, young people being deprived of opportunities to stand on their own two feet - the ways and means towards self-determination, but there are solutions, writes Reinhard Bütikofer."
