Going To Be Campaign

Going To Be - SAMH's campaign about young people

Three children in every classroom will have experienced a mental health problem by the time they're 16. And thousands will struggle to get the help they need. We think young people deserve better. Which is why we're building a movement of people to provide one voice on the issue.

Growing up, we all thought about what we were going to be as adults.  It was a magical time when almost anything was possible.  An inventor, a drummer, a motorbike racer - the possibilities were endless.  Our campaign films feature three young people dreaming about their future, and acknowledging that this future may include a mental health problem.
