In the wake of the global pandemic, it is vital more than ever that young people with mental health problems are getting the emotional support they need.

Recent statistics published from  YoungMinds Mental Health Charity UK suggest that as many as:

  • One in ten young people suffers from a significant mental health problem
  • 80,000 children and young people suffer from severe depression
  • One in twelve young people self harm.

Edukit have recently launched a wellbeing app for students to help improve their mental health and communicate their concerns with staff.

This is a timely initiative to help empower young people to take control of their wellbeing and to help raise awareness of mental health support available.
