Mental illness young men to drop secondary education

It is often problems with stress, anxiety or depression, which gets the young men to fall apart, believes the association.

Half of the young men who have had a mental disorder, do not carry out a post-secondary education.

It shows the numbers from Sundhedsdatastyrelsen.

For comparison, gets 77 percent of all young men completed an upper secondary education.

The image recognizes Theodor Gjerding, who is the national chairman of the association of the Mind and youth, who have contact with many of the young people.

- to implement a training or care of a job is one of the allersværeste, when you grapple with the mental health problems in everyday life, he says.

In the survey has asked how many of the 25-year-olds who have completed an upper secondary education such as high school or a vocational training.

50 percent of men who have or have had mental health problems, replied that they had a secondary education. While the same was true for 63 percent of the women.

According to Theodor Gjerding it is often problems with stress, anxiety or depression, which makes that the young men fall from along the way in the training.

- If you look at each of them in isolation, it also has three modes, making it difficult to complete an education, he says.

Theodor Gjerding adds that it is also a major problem is that many of them do not get started with a youth education after finishing the course.

- One of the things we hear is that when you are in an education or are moving into an education - so it can be very confusing.

- If you are on the inside of the system and gets hit, it can be difficult to get help. You stand very much alone.

And for those who need to check on a education, it seems confusing, because one will not be a nuisance. And many have also really difficult to admit to themselves that they come with some problems, says Theodor Gjerding.
