Figures show that mental health issues for girls and women are on the rise. Statistics from the NSPCC released this week revealed that there has been a rise of 35% ChildLine counselling sessions about anxiety in the last year, with girls as young as eight being seven times more likely to contact ChildLine than boys.
The recently published 2014 Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey found that young women are three times as likely (26%) to experience a common mental health problem as young men (9%). Young women also have the highest rates of reported self-harm and suicidal thoughts, with more than 1 in 5 having thought about taking their own lives, and 1 in 4 reporting having self-harmed at some point in their lives.
