“There is a discomfort, a psychological suffering that does not cry out because there is modesty, but it is increasing in the population. From a research on our community of psychologists, it emerged that requests for help have increased by 40%, so c “It is a very strong demand for assistance, but one in 3 people who manifest this need cannot access because they have no financial resources. We think how important these data are in a country that does not have an adequate public network, with few psychologists in the National Health Service , to give answers and prevent. Let’s think about school and the discomforts of adolescence “. This was stated by David Lazzari, president of the National Council of the Order of Psychologists (Cnop), in his speech at the opening of the conference ‘The psyche at the center of life’, promoted by the Cnop in Rome for the National Day of Psychology 2021. “Today there is a need to promote a conscious, open psyche. We need it and today more than ever we are witnessing the fact that the psyche is wounded, is experiencing malaise and is fragile – notes Lazzari – The latest data from October, on a revision of world literature on this topic, show that depressive symptoms in boys up to 18 years have increased by 50% and anxiety symptoms have also doubled. As for the over 18s, in a review of 48 studies in 204 countries there is was a 27% increase in depression and 25% anxiety. ”
