“850,000 children and young people in the UK have a mental health problem - and that's just the ones who have been diagnosed.. Childhood and teenage years are when mental health is developed and patterns are set for the future. So a child with good mental health is much more likely to have good mental health as an adult, and to be able to take on adult responsibilities and fulfill their potential.. There is still a huge stigma around mental health which means children and young people are not getting the support they need” YoungMinds 2014
