    Well I go to a girls school, so no boys by default. But yes, boys do tend to suffer in silence when it comes to mental health.

    Well, they say that something like 1 in 4 people have some sort of mental health problem; so it's not that much of a surprise, really.

    Wow?! That's a huge amount of people.
    it's actually a lot higher than that most internal estimates are 50-60% suffering at least low level issues
