A leading group of private hospitals has identified a worrying rise in the use of antidepressants by teenagers.
Chris Thompson, speaking on behalf of the Priory group, told Channel Four's Evening News of the recent trend this week.
Continuing, Mr Thompson said the rise in antidepressant ingestion is partly attributable to the fact that "there is very little available in terms of counselling and psychotherapy."
Meanwhile, ChildLine has also voiced a concern that more and more pupils are self-harming or committing suicide due to exam stress.
These statements, which will only increase criticism of Britain's exam system, the rigours of which have already this week been linked to the rising use of Prozac by teenagers across the UK.
