Depression and low mood (young people)
In this section you can find out about the experience of depression and low mood in young people by seeing and hearing young people share their personal stories on film. Researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 39 young people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as bullying, anxiety, getting a diagnosis and impact on family and social life. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
