THE STATISTICS ARE STAGGERING ...
Mental illness is a worldwide epidemic and affects adolescents in higher proportions. 1 in 5 young people are diagnosed with a mental illness, though many more go undiagnosed. The symptoms of these disorders have profound influences on relationships, physical health, academic performance, social capacity, and more. 20% of this population is affected yet only 4% of the health care budget is spent on mental health.
This fact makes access to professional support extremely difficult and limits the forward progression of the next generation.
