Stigma stops young people talking about mental health

Stigma stops young people talking about mental health
- The research, funded by Macquarie, based on a survey of 2,215 respondents aged 16 to 25, found that the vast majority of young people (78%) think there is a stigma attached to mental health issues.
A third of those young people who would keep quiet about their mental health worries think admitting to a problem could affect their job prospects, 57% wouldn’t want anyone to know they were struggling and 35% fear it would make them “look weak”.
