There is a growing awareness of mental health difficulties increasing amongst children and teenagers.  Some cite the stresses of modern life, including nigh-on 24/7 social media, lives spent on-line, financial difficulties amongst families, and the pressures of schooling.  I wanted to share this BBC article on a new study on teenagers, to illustrate where things have got to currently and where they may be headed.

This is not just a teenage issue, it is something for the parents and schools of younger children to act on also.

You can access the article here.
