Global Youth Survey for the World Youth Report 2021: Improving Youth Wellbeing and Mental Health

WYR 2021 Mental Health

Background 

The World Youth Report (WYR) is a flagship publication of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), Division for Inclusive Social Development (DISD). The Report addresses youth development issues around the world.

General Assembly resolution 58/133, and subsequent biennial resolutions including the most recent General Assembly resolution 74/121, mandate the production of the World Youth Report on a biennial basis. The World Youth Report (WYR) is guided by the World Programme of Action for Youth and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The next World Youth Report will focus on the role of inclusive social policies in improving young people’s mental health and wellbeing. It will bring together new data, insights and lived experience to chart a progressive agenda on the determinants of youth mental health including issues such as housing, education, family and society. Central to this report will be the experiences and perspectives of young people themselves.
