“I am with you”: Just four simple words with a world of meaning.
As part of the Master Plan global initiative, we are proud to announce the #IAmWithYou campaign in order
to raise awareness of, and provide resources for, the millions of young people around the world suffering from
depression, loneliness, and the suicidal ideations that can accompany them. As such, the #Iamwithyou
campaign fits squarely within the fundamental objectives of the Master Plan’s efforts to promote SDG3.
According to the WHO, in 2016 over 62,000 people between 10-19 years of age token their life. In the years
since this number has only increased, with predictions that this tragic trajectory will only continue. These
figured, though disturbing, believe the far more widespread impact these suicides have on the family and
friends of the deceased, with depression and thoughts of suicide having a hydra-like ripple effect across
families, schools, and communities.
Youth emotional despair is a global health crisis.
