International Youth Day 2014 Celebrated at AAFT

The United Nations General Assembly endorsed the recommendation made by the World Conference of Ministers Responsible for Youth that 12 August be declared International Youth Day. The theme of International Youth Day 2014 is Youth and Mental Health informed Sandeep Marwah Ambassador of International Human Rights Organization affiliated to United Nation at Asian Academy of Film And Television, Noida Film City.

Talking to the young film makers at AAFT, Sandeep Marwah added that Youth with mental health conditions can often experience stigma and discrimination, which in turn can 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, as well as highlight the experiences of brave, young individuals who have chosen to speak out about these issues with the objective of overcoming stigma and discrimination to ensure that young people with mental health conditions can lead full and healthy lives free from isolation and unnecessary shame, and openly seek the services and support they need.
