    Young people are under more pressure than ever before with contributing factors such as social media, porn, sex, relationships and gender roles putting a worrying amount of pressure on adolescents. 

    • Teenagers are the most likely group to suffer from domestic abuse. NSPCC found a staggering 25% of girls and 18% of boys reported some form of physical abuse from their partners
    • 85% of 18-24 year-olds have a smartphone making social media more accessible than ever before
    • 90% of 8-16 year-olds have seen online pornography
    • 15-year-olds in the UK were among the saddest and least satisfied with their lives in Europe

    About the training 

    Under Pressure is a national training programme developed by Zero Tolernace with support from partners in YouthLink Scotland and Celcis. 

    The programme aims to support professionals working wtih young people to open discussions with them about some of the challenges and pressures they may be facing including potential risks of grooming and sexual exploitation, negotiating online safety, engaging in healthy consent-based relationships, and dealing with the pressures to conform to idealised models of 'how to be' men and women. 

    The training also takes participants through an introduction to gender and gender-based abuse. 

    Trainees will receive access to Under Pressure training resources for use with young people.
