There are huge pressures on young people in modern society which can affect their mental health. If you are a young person, or you are worried about a child close to you, it is important to recognise that you are not alone and Priory can help.
The mental wellbeing of a young person is just as important as their physical health and pressures such as cyberbullying, family breakdown and exam stress can cause them to engage in unhealthy behaviours. This can include self-harm, isolation or aggressive outbursts. Other difficulties experienced by young people can include body image pressures. Dr Mahadev Jasti, Medical Director and Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist at The Priory Wellbeing Centre Manchester, says: "Issues surrounding body image and self-esteem are at an all-time high, and these concerns are often amplified when a young person leaves the safe and familiar environment of their first school.”
Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)
If you recognise such difficulties in yourself or someone that you love, Priory offers specialist CAMHS, with experienced and knowledgeable psychiatrists and therapists in this field to lead you to a happier way of life.
At Priory we understand that seeking help can be daunting, especially for a young person. As such, we place great emphasis on putting people at ease from the moment they arrive and we offer a welcoming, comfortable and friendly environment.
Priory offer fast access to services for young people and flexible appointment times, meaning that appointments can be made after school or college days have finished. Young people can sometimes find it easier to discuss their concerns with a professional than their family, however we do encourage parent and carer participation throughout the journey.
Priory offers a Free Telephone Consultation, for further information call today on: (+971) 4 245 3800 or submit an enquiry form in confidence. We will provide you with details on all our treatments and offer help on how to manage your mental health at a time that suits you.
