A growing number of parents think their children are depressed and are turning to a mental health charity for help.Young Minds says one in five people who call their helpline are parents seeking advice about their children’s depression.

Figures suggest that for every child who takes his or her own life, 50 more will try.

If you are worried or have reason to be concerned about a young person, or yourself, have a look at the Young Minds website – listed on the right under Young People.
