Cover Magazine - Young people face 'specific' mental health challenges - GRiD

By Adam Saville

Group risk trade body urges employers to tailor support to younger demographic on World Mental Health Day.

A key focus of World Mental Health Day this year is the mental health of young people in society today.

To bring attention to the issue, trade body GRiD has highlighted the specific types of support and services available to young people at work through group risk policies.

These include clinical assessments by mental health specialists, diagnosis, counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy as well as other specialist forms of help. Support can also be accessed by members of their families such as siblings and parents.

Social media

According to research by Papyrus UK, at least 95 university students took their own lives in the last academic year and the pressures associated with social media also contribute to stress, said the group risk trade body.

According to GRiD, employee assistance programmes (EAPs) often have a high usage among younger people and can be particularly useful to new recruits to help them transition from tertiary education into the workplace.
