Imeelezwa, kila mwaka Vijana wapatao 45,800 hupoteza maisha kwa kujiua, sababu ambayo imetajwa kuwa ya 5 kwa vifo vya Watoto kati ya miaka 10 - 19.

Ripoti hiyo imesema matatizo mbalimbali ya #AfyaYaAkili ikiwemo Bipolar Disorder na matatizo ya kula (Eating Disorders) yana athari kubwa katika Afya, Elimu na maisha ya Watoto na Vijana kwa ujumla.

Almost one in five 15- to 24-year-olds around the world say they often feel depressed, according to a new UN report.

The children’s agency, Unicef, and Gallup conducted interviews in 21 countries during the first six months of the year.

Almost all children across the globe have been affected by lockdowns, school closures and disruption to routines. Coupled with concern for family income and health, many young people feel afraid, angry, and uncertain about the future, said the report released on Tuesday.

Almost a third of children in Cameroon said they often felt depressed or had little interest in doing things, while one in five children in the UK, and one in 10 children in Ethiopia and Japan felt this way.

The findings do not reflect levels of diagnosed depression but show how children and young people have been feeling during the Covid-19 pandemic. A lack of data gathering and routine monitoring meant the picture of young people’s mental health status and needs in most countries was extremely limited, said the report.

The report highlighted how more than one in seven 10- to 19-year-olds (13%) are estimated to live with a diagnosed mental health disorder – 89 million boys and 77 million girls.

“It has been a long, long 18 months for all of us – especially children. With nationwide lockdowns and pandemic-related movement restrictions, children have spent indelible years of their lives away from family, friends, classrooms, play – key elements of childhood,” said Henrietta Fore, Unicef’s executive director.
