A new report by Young Minds and The Children’s Society has found that more than a quarter of young people struggling with their mental health don’t ask for help because they “don’t want to inconvenience anyone”. This report focuses on the experience of young people visiting their General Practitioner (GP) with mental health concerns. It highlights how GPs have a key role to play in providing advice to young people and making referrals to specialist services – but how they are often unable to help young people struggling to access early help before things reach crisis point.
