Do boys bottle their emotions up?

The number of boys aged from 11 to teenage years suffering from mental health problems is on the rise, a head teacher has warned. Bernard Trafford, head of the Royal Grammar School (RGS) in Newcastle upon Tyne, said he was aware of a number of boys in northern private schools suffering anorexia as a result of the pressure to succeed academically.

Teenager Jack Jacobs, who developed depression and an eating disorder at the age of 14, joins us for an interview alongside his mum Jennie and Dr Hilary Jones.
