Teens are sleeping less and are more depressed

Young people are more likely to feel depressed and sleep less than 10 years ago, a new study suggests.

It also found that other issues such as drinking and smoking, often linked to mental health issues, are not as commonly in 14 year olds in 2015.

Young people who hurt themself rose over 10% and girls were more likely to harm themselves than that of boys.

Teenagers were also falling asleep later and then getting up earlier so many are not getting the recommended sleep of eight hours.
