Youngsters fear rejection when opening up about mental health
Youngsters struggling with their mental health fear speaking out could lead to them being judged, isolated or rejected.
That’s according to a survey by SeeMe Scotland.
They received more than 5,000 responses – with many raising concerns they won’t be listened to if they open up.
Calum Irving’s a director at SeeMe Scotland:
See Me director Calum Irving said: “We want a stigma free childhood for all of Scotland’s young people. So we are delighted to see the Scottish Government making this commitment today to ensure that reducing stigma is at the core of everything they do.
“This means creating environments where young people can have open and honest conversations, with people they trust, who won’t treat them unfairly.”
