Rethink Mental Illness, the Mental Health Foundation and Sane say that lives could be at risk.
The charities say that it’s crucial to raise awareness among parents and teenagers so that they know what to look out for.
Daniel Wasp works on the Disability and Dyslexia Team at the University of Brighton Hastings campus, he says that, “a sign of a problem could be anything out of the ordinary for that person.”
“Sometimes people that come to us have seen their GP and know what the issue is. Other people sometimes don’t know.
Daniel also said that: “Friends and family can look out for people doing things out of the ordinary for them, that can sometimes be a sign.
“There’s a lot of help out there, there’s been a lot of cuts to services nationally but on our campus, there is lots of support from tutors and counsellors.”
