Depression and anxiety are on the rise among young people, according to the Family Centre, as cases of Covid-19 surge on the island.

The charity reminded the community its team was “ready to assist you without judgment” at no out-of-pocket cost to families.

Sandy De Silva, the executive director, said: “Predictability is a significant stabilising force for children and adolescents.

“This has certainly been disrupted since the rise in Covid-19 cases.”
