About Youth Mental Health.  What are the risk factors? 

 

Mental health issues normally manifest before an individual is 24 years old, which is why its important to focus on mental health in youth. In adolescence especially, young individuals are experiencing their context and themselves differently, which can also impact on mental health. 

 

There are numerous risk factors which can influence mental health. The most common mental health issues are related with family and child’s developmental environment. Single parent, alcohol abuse, young maternal age, conflicts and violence with the family, lack of emotional connection are just a few examples which can influence young people and their mental health. 

 

Young individuals who experience a lack of warmth and care from his/her family are more vulnerable in other communities, such as school, and can experience bullying, discrimination and exclusion or on the contrary, can participate in bullying and discrimination. 

 

Therefore early intervention is very important to identify and support young people and to prevent progression of any untreated conditions. School teachers, youth organisations and parents should be aware and ready to deliver mental health first aid as needed.  

 

Youth mental health in the UK. 

 

Young people are taking their own lives.The number of teenage suicides has increased by 67% since 2010 (reference this). Suicide is the most common cause of death in young people in the UK.  

 

Office of National Statistics (ONS) figures show that in the last year alone 187 under 19s took their own lives, compared with 162 the year before – a rise of 15 per cent. 

 

Social isolation is also a large problem in youth. The most connected iGeneration through social media is the most socially isolated.
