Living with mental illness

Mental Health Statistics presented by the Young Minds charity says rates of depression have increased by 70% over the last 25 years and the number of young people presented to A&E with a psychiatric condition has more than doubled since 2009.

Students at Willow Bank Day School at The Children's Hospital School in Leicester describe what it is like living with mental health issues and how they would like to see a mental health funding increase.

This was produced as part of BBC News School Report.
