Students working hard at The Abbey to raise awareness of Mental Health & Wellbeing in young people!
615 million people suffer from anxiety and/or depression
During 2003-2013 (In England) 13,972 deaths were identified as suicides. This approximately, on average, 1270 suicides per year.
We asked some students at The Abbey School about their personal views on this topic.
Many people suffer from depression and it is a rising problem in with there being more support and medication to stop and prevent depression/anxiety.
So with a conscious effort being made to increase the awareness about this issue, and the continuation of people working together to create more support systems, let’s hope that it becomes less and less of a problem.
