See Me's latest campaign is reaching out to young people and those who care about them by making a bold statement that it's okay to not feel okay.
Growing up can be stressful and there are lots of things that worry young people. If you're reading this as a young person we want adults to take your concerns seriously and not respond with words like: 'it's all going to be okay' or 'it's just a phase'.
Because there are a lot of legitimate reasons why at this age you might not feel okay.
Does the campaign talk to you?
The campaign aims to help you understand your feelings better and give you the confidence and words to reach out to the right people for support and guidance if you are struggling.
And whatever is bothering you, it's important to know that it’s okay not to be okay.
Check out the video here. Let's get young people talking about mental health and asking for help before things get out of hand.

You don’t have to feel good all the time. We all have mental health, sometimes it’s up, and sometimes it’s down. If you feel shite it’s okay, and it’s okay to say it. No one should ever feel ashamed to admit that they’re struggling with their mental health. Don’t feel shite alone. Let’s start talking about our good mental health, our shite mental health and everything in between. #ItsOkayTo #PowerOfOkay #StartTalking #EndStigma #Shite #MentalHealth #MentalHealthAwareness #MentalIllness #LetsTalk #Health #Wellbeing #SeeMe #Scotland
Christmas is great for many. But it can be a huge source of worry. If you’re worried or stressed about Christmas that’s okay, you’re allowed to be. Don’t be afraid to open up and talk to someone about how you’re feeling. #christmas #mentalhealth #itsokayto #mentalhealthawareness #endstigma #endstigma
The holidays can feel really overwhelming with so much pressure to socialise, have a great time and enjoy yourself. But mental health problems don’t go away just because it’s the holidays. It's okay to struggle with your mental health over Christmas, and #itsokayto talk to someone about how you're feeling.
If you're feeling stressed, anxious or depressed then don't be afraid to talk to someone. You can be anxious about Christmas that’s okay, and you can be really excited, that’s okay too.
To everyone, Season’s Greetings from See Me x
