Young Mind In Pain

In Germany around 20% of all children and adolescents display behavioural problems to a level where they need to undergo psychiatric assessment. In addition to these psychological behavioural problems, there are another 2 to 5% of children who display psychosomatic problems; so about 25% in all. Approximately half of these require treatment. The figures are similar for France, Italy and the UK.In nearly every society mental illness in children is overlooked, and is a taboo subject. Prejudice surrounds mental illness and gives rise to children being stigmatized. But children’s behavioural problems are not a modern day phenomenon. The documentary presents the most common psychological behavioural problems in children and shows the modern day therapies.
