Loneliness and perfectionism have emerged as two of the biggest issues affecting young people’s mental health
The findings come from the campaign ‘What’s Up With Everyone’ which has seen award winning animators Aardman (the studio behind Wallace and Gromit) alongside Nottingham University to produce a series of short (less than one minute) animations about perfectionism, loneliness and isolation, competitiveness, independence and social media.
EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO FIT IN SO EASILY. I FEEL SO ALONE
I DIDN’T GET THE GRADES I WANTED, I’M SUCH A FAILURE
I’M SO STRESSED, TRYING TO BE THE BEST AT EVERYTHING
WHY DON’T I LOOK LIKE THAT ON INSTA?
THERE ARE JUST TOO MANY DECISIONS TO MAKE
