Video highlights mental health issues among young people

Some of the fantastic young girls in Foróige in Mulhuddart, Blanchardstown, have made a video to raise awareness on mental health.

It highlights some of the issues young people can suffer from, such as anxiety, depression and panic attacks.

Leanne Oxby, a volunteer who teaches young people about mental health, said they made the video as part of their Foróige citizenship project "to raise awareness on this crucial issue".

She posted the clip to us on Facebook and asked us to share it "to show people where to go for help if they need it."

We'd be glad to, Leanne. Keep up the great work.

For anyone who is suffering from any of the issues highlighted in the footage, they can contact TeenLine 1800 833 634, Aware 1890 303 302, Samaritans 116 123, or Childline 1800 666 666

Alternatively, they can contact their local doctor, youth officer or Pieta House.
