Feel Happy At Play

 

 

Nearly three in four young people worry about how their friends will react when they talk about their mental health issues.

Many say they lack self-esteem as a result of their conditions, leaving them anxious about how they will fit in with their peers.


Add the pressures of social media, relationships, drink and drugs, and young people can soon find themselves – and their mental health – under real strain.


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 play’, before proposing practical solutions to make change for the better.
