Prime Minister's Youth Mental Health Project

In 2012, the Prime Minister’s Youth Mental Health Project (YMHP) was established to address concerns about mental health vulnerability in young people.

The YMHP promoted the mental health and wellbeing of young people with or at risk of developing mild to moderate mental health issues. It consisted of 26 initiatives across the Ministries of Health, Education, Social Development and Te Puni Kokiri.

Superu led the strategic evaluation of the YMHP as a whole. The evaluation is part of a wider move by government to assess how effectively government policies and practices are being applied.

 

In 2016, Superu  published the phase 2 results of the  strategic evaluation in three reports:

Youth Mental Health Project – Summative evaluation report (PDF, 2 mB)

Youth Mental Health Project – Localities and national perspectives evaluation  (PDF, 2.7 mB)
