(ANSA) – MILAN, APRIL 15 – In the United States, in the first six months of 2021, due to covid and lock-down, psychiatric hospitals report a 45% increase in the number of cases of self-harm and suicide attempts up to 17 years compared to the same period of 2020. In Italy the National Council of the Order of Psychologists (Cnop), last October in a report, with the responses of 5,621 specialists, notes that patients under the age of 18 in therapy have increased by 31%.
It is the synthesis of a focus of the Freud Higher Institute of Milan which aims to address students’ problems in an adequate way.
“The signs are strong, anxiety, depression, self-harm, after these two years of pandemic, we need to intercept the general discomfort – explains director Daniele Nappo -. With the post-pandemic, young people are fighting a very complex period and condition of their life, with repercussions falling back to their mental health; unfortunately, psychological support, prevention and listening were talked about shortly before and little is said about it even today. The signs of widespread worsening are clear and shared but the alarm seems to be unheard “.
The pandemic has produced a general decline in the mental health of boys and girls, with consequences for all adolescents between 12 and 18 years – it is emphasized in the analysis – who had no worries had to face phases of loss and discomfort due to the limitations of sociability; for those who were already in a critical condition, the chances of asking for support have decreased, and for the health and social system the risk of not being able to intercept and in part also to manage requests for help has increased. Throughout Italy, hospitals have been forced to increase the number of beds in children’s neuropsychiatry wards to receive a number of people that had never been seen in recent years.”
