More young Czechs on disability pensions for mental health reasons
The number of young people in Czechia on disability pensions for mental health reasons has grown, Czech Television reported. Last year there was an increase of 1,300 in the number of patients aged 19 or under receiving such monies.
Anxiety and depression are increasingly the reasons young people are unable to work, Czech TV said. Experts told the station that one reason may be poor access to timely care.
