Lessons on mental health should be conducted in all schools, campaigners have said.
A survey by the charity MindFull suggests that an increasing number of young people are suffering from anxiety and depression, with almost a third of under-16s having thought about or attempted suicide.
The charity is launching a web-based mental health service for young people to tackle the problem.
