Youth experiencing anxiety reluctant to ask for help


Over 15.4% of young people battle with anxiety and depression, however some find it difficult to reach out and make the first step.

With many helpful services in place like headspace, young people don’t believe their anxiety is serious enough.

As part of National Youth Week, The Wire looks into why young people experiencing mental health issues aren’t making the first step to reach out for help.
