February 10, 2014 9:51 am

Thousands of young children are being treated for anxiety, stress and depression, with bullying and a fear of failure said to be among the causes. According to Children’s mental health charity YoungMinds 96,000 children aged between five and 10 suffer from an anxiety disorder, while 8,700 are seriously depressed. Overall, more than half a million children and young people up to the age of 16 are affected by a diagnosable mental health disorder. Expert Lucie Russell commented: ‘It’s a sad indictment of the society we live in.’
