Mental illness is becoming increasingly prevalent in today's society, particularly among young people. What can we do to support them in overcoming these issues?


Body shaming, eating disorders, depression, self-harm, drug abuse, anxiety, fake friendships, social media, family conflicts, heartbreaks, and many other challenges are just some of the issues that young people are facing. According to Charley Johnson, they are not alone in their struggles. She has realized that everyone has some form of problem they are grappling with, but most choose to keep it hidden.
