Cameron Thompson for MSYP
All of the SYP candidates were asked to make a short video to highlight the issues which are important to us and the reasons why people should vote for us.

As a trained Mental Health First Aider with a diploma in Advanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, I am very aware of the problems that many young people face with mental health, and also of what the government could be doing to help.

Out of the three issues I chose, I believe mental health to be one of the biggest, especially in an island community such as ours, where very few are left unaffected by the worst possible results of mental ill health.

In my 2 minute video, I talk about why proper mental health support for young people is so vital, and what I’d like to see the Youth Parliament do to effect change.
