The Problem...

 

Today in East Sussex, 1 in 5 young people suffer from a mental illness, that’s 20% of our young population, but yet only about 4% of the total health care budget is spent on our mental health.

 

The number of young people checking into A&E after self-harming has more than trebled since 2009.

 

In the past three years reported cases of eating disorders have also doubled.

 

Depression and anxiety among children and teenagers has increased by 70% in the past 25 years.

 

50% of people suffering from adult mental health disorders first experienced symptoms by the age of 14. It makes sense that by seeking help early, future mental health problems can be alleviated or avoided.

 

Despite more and more alarming statistics being reported in the news and media, 70% of young people who experience mental health problems do not receive appropriate support.
