Youth Mental Health is a major issue for anyone who regularly works with young people in a supportive environment. This is unsurprising as our teens to our mid twenties is a time when young people begin to form their own identity and face various challenges as they learn to be more independent and self-reliant.

Based on international and Irish research, it is estimated that at any one time 1 in 5 young people are going through a difficult time in their lives which is impacting on their mental health. Although this figure is high only 2 percent of these young people are likely to need specialist intervention to support them on their journey back to mental health and well-being.
