Depression and anxiety
Depression and anxiety are among the most common mental health problems experienced by young people. Often, the symptoms aren’t recognised and therefore young people don’t get the help that’s needed. Sometimes, the signs can be ignored or passed over as “just part of growing up”.
If you think you, or someone you know, may have depression or anxiety:
- LOOK for the signs of depression and anxiety
- LISTEN to your friends’ experience
- TALK about what’s going on
- SEEK HELP together.
