Health promotion program is series of actions to encourage good health and wellbeing. Spreading consciousness about good health and wellbeing is a part of such promotional actions that includes enlightening people with the ways to stay fit and healthy. Promotion of practices and values that influences a community about good health is also a part of health promotional program (Eldredge et al., 2016).
According to the World Health Organization’s report about mental health, around 450 million of people across the world is suffering from mental illness and the maximum of the population is below the age of 35. Treatments for these disorders are available, but approximately two-thirds of individuals with an identified mental disorder never look for help from a health professional (Kessler et al., 2013). Shame, discrimination and negligence inhibit care and treatment from reaching people with mental disorders. Australia is suffering from these mental disorders as well. 27 percent of young Australians are getting affected with mental illness. However, minimum from them seeks help form a mental health advisor or any physician. There is no perfect information is available regarding the level of disability experienced by the younger generation with mental health problem or the reason they are unable to reach to an expert for help (Thapar et al., 2012).
This report is going to discuss all these problems and issues that the younger generation is facing regarding their mental health. This report will focus the area of Auburn Sydney, New South wales to discuss about the issue and will propose a health promotional program regarding mental illness in this area. Further, the objectives and strategies to achieve the goal, the action plan for implementation of the program and a literature review regarding the development, implementation, and evaluation of the program will be discussed.
Mental health in younger generation is a problem that is affecting almost every country in the world. World Health Organization (WHO) has already included the disorder in the top three lists of diseases that affects a majority of the population worldwide. Auburn is a suburb city in New South Wales Australia and according to the census of 2011, the median age of population in this city is 29 years (Local Stats, 2017). Hence, majority of the people affected with mental illness is below the age of 35 and it is a matter of concern. The prime reason for the poor mental condition can be the diversity of the area. 15 percent of the population in this area speaks Arabic, 14 percent speaks English and rest are other languages. People own almost 20 percent of homes and around 45 percent are rented homes. Therefore, in the former scenario, communication becomes the reason for stress and depression and in the second scenario; shelter is the prime reason for the mental health and illness in these younger people. They have to face disgrace, shame during their work, education, stay (Lawrence et al., 2013). Further, they neglect seeking help form mental health expert. Hence, a broad population in the area is now suffering from mental illness. Fifty two percent of the people in Auburn and over the age of 15 are associated to laborer jobs and the level of education is low, that contributes to the mental illness in the young and teen people in this area. The rate of unemployment is around 12 percent that can also lead to the stress and depression in younger generation in auburn (Local Stats, 2017).
Numerous health promotion programs are running in Australia to help the younger generation in need. Maximum of these programs are government sponsored and are driven by workers employed by the government. However, from the total health budget, government has sanctioned very few amount of money to be spend on the mental health promotion of the Auburn area (Street, Gold & Manning, 2013). Hence, the area needs a strong and appealing health promotion program that helps these younger people to come out, defeat their fear and speak up about their issues. A sound health promotion program will be employed for the area of Auburn Sydney to mitigate the problem of mental illness. The program will be titled as “Auburn Mental Health promotional Strategy” and the principle goal for the program will be promotion ways to improve mental health in teens and younger adults in the Local Government Area (LGA) Auburn of Sydney and will include the peers and parents of affected people to help them overcome the situation (Edelman, Mandle & Kudzma, 2013).
To enforce a change in the mindset of the society, people from within the society, need to be employed to make change in the scenario. Similarly, to create and implement a successful health promotional program, chosen workforce need to be active, unbiased, helpful, understanding and with experience to talk to people (Fenner et al., 2013). In this health campaign, help from the local government will be taken to spread the awareness in a broad way, to undertake the surveys or interviews, government health experts will be employed, group of counsellors will be employed to break the ice of mentally ill people who are afraid to come out and speak about it. Volunteers will be employed for advertisement and pamphlet distribution. Finally, to conduct the entire campaign successfully help from NSW police will be taken (King, O’rourke & DeLongis, 2014).
Success of any health promotional campaign depends on its time-bound implementation. For the “Auburn mental health promotional strategy”, timeline will be one year and the expansion of it will depend on the outcomes, and recommendations (Kaufman, 2012). Recruitment of employees, selection of camp locations across auburn and planning of the program will be completed in a month (November 2017) and rest of the 11 month will be allotted for the implementation of the program. Evaluation will last another month (December 2018) and further decision will be made for expansion in the year 2019.

The critical aspect of health strategy planning involves the preparation of a budget including the expenses and funding. The budget must include the funding for the materials that are needed in the health strategy plan (Jackson, 2013). This section will include the salaries of the workers like volunteer staff, mental health experts and private counsellors for the campaign and promotions. Furthermore, while making the budget, it should be kept in mind that every intervention or strategy needs different set of resources (Adamopoulos & Todri, 2015). As the government and few private organizations are a part of this promotional campaign, the government should bear the maximum expense of the event.
Evaluation is an important part of any promotional event, as the success of failure of the complete program can be understood only after the evaluation process is completed. Whether the identified strategies and objectives are achieved or not can be understood using the process (Livingston et al., 2013). This health promotional camp will use the outcome evaluation process to identify the success. This specific evaluation process deals with quantitative data and identifies how the data or rate of the activity in question changes after the implementation of the interventions(Posavac, 2012). The evaluation of the health promotion program has been mentioned below:
Mode of measurement
Increased number of youth coming out and accepting the severity of their mental illness and seeking help fearlessly.
Internal statistics of the program, number of followers of the Facebook and twitter page number of attendance in promotional events and camps
Involvement of youth in the promotional events and accepting the fact that mental illness in as normal as fever and can be cured completely.
Attendance of youth in events that promotes mental health and speaks about mental illness loudly. Workshop and seminar attendance, community feedback (surveys), list of venues of workshops
Decrease in the number of suicides and deaths of youth in the area due to depression
Statistics from licensed sites, NSW Police Statistics, registration of young people in sports and activities that promotes healthy living
People are aware about their disorder and willing to cure it. people are sharing everything that use to hinder them in the past to confess their mental illness
Record of conferences, workshops, number of active counselling programs in auburn and Sydney
In this section, the report is going to discuss some of the literatures that consists development, implementation and evaluation of health promotional programs regarding mental illness. According to Neiger et al. (2012), social media has tremendous capability to change the view of society and implement an intervention for the betterment of society. The process uses surveys and questionnaires to understand the effect of social media. It carried out an overarching evaluation strategy. Another strategy uses online mental health promotion and prevention interventions for youth aged 12–25 years. The results from the mental health promotion interventions indicate that there is some indication that skills-based interventions existing in a module-based format can have an important impact on teen-age mental health (Powell et al., 2012). Further, according to Curran et al. (2012), blending of clinical effectiveness of intervention and implementation can lead to success as this provides a real world example in the study. Results of such promotional event can be of three types, first one determines the effectiveness of clinical intervention, secondly, effect of both implementation and effectiveness are determined and thirdly the implementation process is assessed.
In this fast-paced world, attainment of success has become an important factor to assess someone’s capability or achievement. Level of Socio-economic status determines people and their ability to avail luxury of life. Hence, people are becoming competitive in every aspect. However, there are people, comprising average ability to perform, has to suffer from stress and depression, leading to mental illness, This non-contagious disease affects every person in the world at some point of time and the mindfulness and ability of the person determines the level of its severity or the time it will need to get cured. Auburn, a suburb from New South Wales, is suffering from its own social economical issuers and the around 12 percent of younger generation is suffering from unemployment. Hence, stress and depression in the youth has become the major matter of concern for the local government. Therefore, a health promotional program has been developed for the city of auburn that is proposed to run from November 2017 to December 2018. The campaign will comprise of surveys and questionnaires to collect the data. Through this campaign, those youth are expected to come out and speak who never talk about this issue and neglect their mental illness. Finally evaluation plan has been discussed that will determine the success or failure of the program and will determine the continuation or expansion of the process.
