No-one to turn to: The teenage struggle to access mental health support
Discover the truth about teenage mental health in the UK with our groundbreaking research. While NHS data suggests that 1 in 6 teenagers have mental health problems, our study reveals that the scale of the crisis is worse than previously thought.
We surveyed over 1400 teenagers, aged 13 to 17, to find out what's troubling them, where they seek support, and whether that support is making a difference. We even conducted a mental health assessment, asking those who showed significant levels of depression and anxiety why they hadn't sought professional help.
Our report reveals a mental health crisis of unprecedented magnitude, and sheds light on what young people are experiencing right now.
