Are 20% of Irish children disturbed?

More than one in five Irish children between 11 and 13 have reported hearing voices, a sign some experts believe is a risk factor in mental illness. The claim is made in a British Journal of Psychiatry study.The published findings suggest that, in most cases, the auditory hallucinations stop with time. However, children who continue to hear voices could be at risk of mental illness or behavioural disorders.

Odd story. It certainly paints a very different picture of Ireland which seems disturbing.

  1. Are they claiming that British children don’t hear the angels? That would be very sad. I was very lonely for a few months when the voices stopped but I’ll never forget them.

  2. Were the test subjects told if they claimed to be hearing ‘the spirit folk’ they’d be eligible for some kind of cash benefit?

    Hark is that a herald angel? -kerching!

  3. Watched a great little Aussie film with my hosts’ children http://www.mymovies.it/trailer/?id=43637
    not all voices are mental illness…some are just vivid imaginations and appear when kids need them most…now when a child reaches adolescence and is still hearing voices…then, there might be a problem. I love watching kids play with their imaginary friends. I fill that need by visiting ATW from time to time…best imaginary friends ever! That’s (BIFFE!!)…;-)

  4. As as child I also had a mental problem hearing voices.

    Those shouting parents and teachers really got on my nerves.

  5. More than one in five Irish children between 11 and 13 have reported hearing voices

    So almost 80% of Irish children are deaf?

  6. My wife used to visit a relation who was in a mental hospital. Every time she went, she came to the conclusion that the doctors / Psychiatrists were madder than the patients!
