QUARTER OF 17-19 YEAR OLDS HAVE PROBABLE MENTAL DISORDER - STUDY

One in four 17- to 19-year-olds in England had a probable mental disorder in 2022 - up from one in six in 2021, according to an NHS Digital report.


Based on an online survey, rates among teenage boys and girls were similar - but twice as high in 17- to 24-year-old women compared with men.

And children affected were more likely to live in a household with money issues or using a food bank.


Charities said the figures were deeply worrying.
