Mental health concerns increasingly common young people
In June 2010, a study conducted by London Health Services found that children aged five to nine were more than four times more likely than adults to experience mental health concerns and depression.
The number of mental health problems was particul더킹카지노arly high for boys, aged ten to 13, but more severe among boys than girls.
Researchers from the Office for National Statistics found that between 1990 and 2011, the number of reported mental health problems among children and young people was rising by 12 per cent and rising faster than the national우리카지노 average.
The number of young people who had had a mental health concern the previous year rose by 5 per cent.
The number of mental health problems also rose at a faster pace amongst girls, with the rate of cases having increased by 9 per cent, from 60,500 in the year before to 77,400 in 2010.
The study suggests that young people will now face “a greater burden” as they seek mental health care.

But experts say this rise is due to more difficult economic times and a “culture of fear” among doctors.
Gareth Jones, of mental health charity Mind, said that the report highlighted a “lack of support” by medical services.
“We need more services to talk to young people about mental health, to help them understand their own mental heal바카라th, and to work with providers to share this knowledge,” he said.
“But we need services for which the majority of people receiving care are not available. This suggests that the NHS, and not the young, are facing the largest crisis in the mental health system we have.
“The NHS cannot survive with the numbers of people who cannot get services that they need or that work. It cannot cope with the number of mental health care patients it has to treat.”
He added: “I don’t think it’s the young who are at risk of this crisis but the young who get referred by young people they’re struggling with.”
The Royal College of Psychiatrists – one of the groups in the study – urged doctors not to “give emotional comfort” to young people.
‘Famous for its ‘troublesome’ culture’
A report by the Royal College of Psychiatrists said that doctors were “often referred to as ‘the famous for its ‘troublesome’ culture”.
