Mental Health Issues in Young People – Don’t Let Them Suffer in Silence

Weekly Opinion Piece from our Prefect Team:

by Ife A, Lead Prefect

About 1 in 5 young people aged 13 to 19 experience a severe mental health disorder at least once in their lifetime. Over one third of students with a mental health condition, aged between 14 to 21, have the highest dropout rate in education of any disability group, highlighting how many people are not gaining support and are just giving up. They cannot find the help they need.
 
Mental illness is a very important issue. Lots of people have suffered with mental health conditions, such as bi-polar, or have had a history of depression through their lives, and we are now seeing a large chunk of teenagers who struggle with anxiety or depression. If this issue manifests itself in the classroom, then awareness would increase, meaning more establishments would open for support and treatment.
Mental illness starts in early childhood, becoming a normal way of life for adults who remain untreated.  This is why we need to offer help at the early stages of development. We need to spread awareness about teenage depression to put a stop to suffering in silence.
 
Teenage mental health severely impacts a young person’s ability to succeed at school and, in their day to day live, depression and suicide rates increase if left unexplored. We need to protect our young people to keep them safe, healthy and happy.
Too many teenagers continue to feel alone and suffer. By improving education about teenage mental health we can create awareness and hope. We can save lives.
How can we support our friends in school?
 
  • Be friendly with people, even if you don’t know them
  • Be kind - you never know what people are going through
  • Go the extra mile - check if someone is okay if they look unhappy and offer a helping hand
  • Speak to someone in school if you are worried about someone.
World Mental Health Day is on 10th October 2020. Look after your loved ones.
