    The CEO of a Mental Health charity is urging people to reach out and seek help if they’re struggling during lockdown. The plea comes after news of another teenage death from suicide this week.

    Matthew Mackell, 17, from Kent, was found dead in a park in Kent. A notebook was discovered by his family later,showing that the A-level student feared for his future and how lockdown would affect his school results.

    Lancashire Mind’s CEO Tommy McIlravey, said: “There are a lot of young adults and childrenat the momentthat are extremely concerned about their future and the possible detrimental affect all this is having on their education. The death from suicide of a young person is such a tragic event for the family, friends and the whole community around them.My thoughts and condolences are with them at this distressing time.

    “Young people maybe don’t want to burden family or friends with their own worries, but it’s important to let them know that they can talk to someone and that help is out there.”

    Lancashire Mind, who work with schools and young people across the county, have made resources available for free on their website and encourage parents and carers of young people to have a look and use the resources available.

    Tommy added: “Early on in lockdown we decided to make resources available to young people. We felt that it was important that young people are given the righttools around resilience to deal with their mental health and wellbeing and to know that there is help out there if they need it.”
