Great to see this piece of work by @JigsawYMH
^8,290 young adults (18-25)
^10% made suicide attempt
^58% outside normal range of depression and anxiety
^Only 20% met the WHO guidelines of physical activity
We need to make mental health a priority. @TheUSI https://twitter.com/JigsawYMH/status/1196729830881972225
Today, we are able to highlight the hugely important and seminal piece of work that is My World Survey 2! In collaboration with our colleagues at @UCDPsychology, this is a unique insight into the lived realities of over 19,000 young people in Ireland ⬇️ #MyWorldSurvey
Everyday should be national suicide prevention day. We need to talk about it, we can't shy away from discussing it.
We need to use the correct language that isn't stigmatising. We should use language that encourages those suffering, to reach out and speak about it.
