Mental health and suicide in teenagers,
by Francisco Villar

Interview

Suffering, expectations, screens


What can lead a person approaching adult life to want to take their own life? Is it connected with mental health? What role does our constant exposure to screens play? What can we do as a society to tackle this epidemic of distress and suffering that our teenagers are going through? Based on his clinical experience, Francisco Villar tells us about suffering, despair, connections and expectations. He also warns us about how easy we are making it for anyone to reach our children and adolescents through a screen and the impact that this constant exposure to them is having on their developing brains.
