Ian Soars, CEO of Fegans, said:
“The impact that lockdown has had on young people’s mental health is something that we will be dealing with for some time. We have sadly already lost some wonderful young people to suicide and many others are dealing with complex emotional issues due to bereavement, abuse, anxiety, depression, bullying and self-harm…we deal with such awful things every day at Fegans. We are keen to work with GPs to ensure that young people receive the support they deserve to heal and become stronger as they transition from lockdown.”
