(Scotland) Dundee: More Scottish youth need mental health services

May 9, 2017, Dundee, Scotland, Sunday Post: New Scottish mental health awareness campaign ‘Going to be’ focuses on young people https://www.sundaypost.com/fp/new-scottish-mental-health-campaign-focuses-on-effect-on-young-people/ THREE children in every classroom will experience a mental health problem by the time they’re 16. That’s the message coming from the Scottish Association for Mental Health as they launch a new campaign which has young people at its heart. The official launch came ahead of the beginning of Mental Health Awareness Week, which runs from the 8th to the 14th of May. Figures show that last year in Scotland, nearly 7,000 young people didn’t get the help they need for mental health problems. The campaign aims to shed light on the importance of early intervention services for children and young people in Scotland.
