My mental health

Children and young people’s mental health can be affected by their caring role. A GP Patient Survey in 2017 found that 39% of young adult carers reported experience of anxiety or depression compared with 28% of young people without a caring responsibility. It is important that you access good support for your mental health if you feel that you need it.
