Young People in Focus

U.K. charity Young People in Focus (formerly the Trust for the Study of Adolescence) has been researching the mental health of young people. It found that young people in custody were eight to ten times more likely than their peers to commit suicide and three times as likely to have a mental-health problem. For all those between 15 and 24 suicide was the second most common cause of death after road-traffic accidents.
