It seems that the challenges for adolescents in the digital age are too numerous to count. A nationwide survey on mental health for teens 13-18 showed an 8 percent having a definable anxiety disorder, with early symptoms starting around 6 years old. Sadly, of this 8 percent, only 18% received treatment by the time they turn 18.
The study, conducted by Dr Jason Ellis, Director of the Northumbria Centre for Sleep Research, worked with colleagues in the USA, Canada and Glasgow revealing that almost nine percent of the US population, and eight percent of the UK sample suffered from acute insomnia within the duration of the study period. Other findings within the study included that up to 21.43% of the UK samples were more likely to develop full blown chronic insomnia later.
