Feel Happy At Home

 

 

When family relationships break down, parents are addicts, trusted adults abuse and homelessness happens, the effect on young people’s mental health can be catastrophic.

Even without these added pressures, many feel the need to hide their feelings from parents and carers because they're worried they won't understand.


As part of The Feel Happy Fix Live, 16 to 25-year-olds from across the UK are identifying the biggest issues to affect young people’s happiness at home, before proposing practical solutions to make change for the better.
