    Panel Talk – The Dark Matter: Young People’s Mental Health

    Date: Sunday, October 21st
    Time: 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
    Venue: We The Curious

    Recent research suggests that as many as 1 in 6 young people will experience an anxiety condition at some point in their lives, this means that up to 5 people in a school class may be living with anxiety, whether that be OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), social anxiety and shyness, exam stress, worry or panic attacks.

    Many anxiety disorders begin in childhood and adolescence, and the average time a person waits to seek help for their condition (particularly for OCD and chronic worrying or GAD as it is known) is over 10 years! That is a long time to be feeling anxious.

    ​In this panel we discuss ways to talk to our children and young people about mental health, how to offer support and explore various ways to empower our children to find ways to cope with the stresses of the modern world.
