About The Event
In the last few years there has been an increase in the number of young people displaying symptoms of mental ill-health, psychological and emotional distress. According to BBC Scotland more than 5000 under 18´s were prescribed antidepressants in 2017. The reasons are complex and include budget cuts to preventative services, increased awareness about mental health and wellbeing, 24/7 culture that we live in and many other possible explanations.
BBC Scotland also highlights that the number of young people self-harming is on the rise. In this short video one of our volunteers talks about the issues. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-31310407
