Over half of all mental ill-health starts by age 14 and 75% develops by age 18 (Murphy and Fonagy 2012)
Anxiety and depression are the most common mental health difficulties and these have high co-morbidity (Green et al 2005
School learning, stress tolerance, confidence, motivation, personal relationships will be adversely affected (Layard 2008)
