According to the World Health Organization, mental health conditions are increasing worldwide. If we take a look at what’s happening today, we will see that 20% of children and adolescents have a mental health condition. Suicide is the second leading cause of death in the 15–29-year-old demographic. Alarmingly research indicates an increase in internalizing symptoms in girls –internalizing symptoms have a basis in emotions linked to distress such as fear and sadness which may exacerbate depression, loneliness, anxiety, and somatic complaints.
Women experience depression rates twice that of men and the need is particularly acute among disadvantaged groups, who experience lower treatment rates and poorer outcomes.
We are working to see a change in the accessibility for treatment in these groups. We believe access to help is critical for improving mental health outcomes.
