Study Finds One in Three Teenagers Have Mental Health Issues

A recent study, conducted by the Action for Children charity, has found that one in three young people suffer from depression, anxiety and the inability to focus on work.

The survey of 6,000 people aged between 13 and 18 reported that young people suffered with negative thoughts that have affected their sleep.

Julia Bentley, Action for Children’s chief executive, has said: “It’s troubling that so many of our young people are dealing with issues of depression and anxiety, and all too often alone.”

British Prime Minister, Theresa May, has announced new plans which will help identify and treat children and young adults with depression.

A Twitter user has stated their opinion on the situation saying:

School head teacher expresses her issues with social media.

Sally Anne Huang, head teacher at James Allen’s Girls’ school (JAGschool), has spoken out about the pressures of social media to show young people we all go through the same thing.

Big Life Project tweeted online about Mrs Huang’s goals last night.

They tweeted:


Mrs Huang wanted to challenge how her students are exposed to online content that show an “impossible perfect” life.
