What is the cause of poor mental health?

There are many different reasons why young people struggle with their mental health.

Often poor mental health is a sign of emotional distress, young people have difficulty explaining because they lack the words or experience to describe it.

Distress can cause anxiety, depression and risky behaviours such as self harm.

1 in 4 young people are struggling with their mental health and everywhere parents turn there are closed doors. Loha exist to completely change this and revolutionise family therapy helping parents find support for their young people when they need it most!

We know it can be very difficult to get help

There is a long waiting list for NHS therapy

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services have a 12-36 month waiting list and private therapy can be expensive.

The issue gets worse over time

Delays in treatment causes young people’s mental health to deteriorate considerably.

Medication doesn't always work

Drugs might alleviate the symptoms of distress but they don't address the cause so the problem re-occurs.

Problems into Adulthood

There’s a 75% risk of poor emotional health becoming chronic if the cause of the distress is left unaddressed.
