Are we failing vulnerable young people?

Those "labels" are self imposed, and yes they are mental health problems and quite serious ones at that.

I would add delusional belief in far leftist ecological fascism, socialism and communism to the list.

I would certainly add "delusional" to the list as well...

For what reason would you say that?

I wouldn't include any of the supposed "sub-cultures" you listed to a list of real life problems facing young people in the Isle of Man.

Some would say they are exaggerated, others would say they do not even exist. It does seem arbitrary to imagine them as sub-cultures and to lump them together, and to not include many others.

All in all, they're irrelevant.

Calling the disenfranchisement of young people irrelevant is a dangerous stance to take.

Being worried about "far-left eco-fascism" is laughable.

The left-right paradigm is a load of garbage and I'm not on the left or right side of it. Small minded people like you fit into it because you lack original thoughts of your own. The far left and the far right, hegelian dialectic in the middle, are essentially part of the same underlying system of coercion based on illegitimate authority.

We have been failing them for as long as I can remember.

The issues start at social care. It is underfunded, and understaffed,  and certainly up to a couple of years ago, had a high turnover of staff. Social care, when properly structured, has the ability to do great things. When it doesn’t, it can’t pick up the problem people that  see-saw between MH services (also understaffed) and the police - who end up using needed capacity to fill the gap.

I've seen some utter tragedies in my time with young people. We can, and must do better.

What, you want me to post a person's name on here, violating God knows how many laws regarding privacy and data protection, not to mention private confidence? Grow up, Neil. This is as embarrassing as your wind up goading of people on threads about institutional bullying where you ask for examples, as if anybody is dumb enough to fall for it.

No, I'm just calling you out for the idiot that you are. Nobody here on the island has been stuck on the waiting list for ten years or more. It's you and your walter mitty life that needs to grow up

"Two teenage neo-Nazis, who encouraged an attack on Prince Harry for marrying a woman of mixed race, have been jailed for terrorism offences"

Who knows if something like this is growing like a cancer amongst the youth of the Isle of Man.

Yes, neo-Nazis (national socialists) are a good example of far leftist ideology infecting the minds of the youth.
