This chapter considers social justice for young people in the context of mental health stigma and discrimination in Scotland. Barriers such as age, gender, and sexuality intertwined with stigma and discrimination are discussed in relation to their impact on help-seeking behaviors in Scotland for poor mental health and well-being. Despite Scottish government strategies and third-sector organizations’ efforts to address issues in relation to mental health stigma and discrimination, these have thus far fallen short. The consideration of unique ways to help young people talk about mental health is discussed in relation to the “Feels FM” campaign, which created an online music jukebox (the first of its kind) to encourage open and honest conversations around mental health stigma, in which young people’s opinions and voice are important in creating their own social justice.
