There is no health without mental health.
With positive stories of hope and strength our impact can enable communities to expand their understanding, lend help to those in need and to support without judgement or cause those around us.
People with mental health issues can lead productive, fulfilling, normal lives with proper treatment and support.
How much do you know about Youth Mental Health?
The Youth Mental Health Project aims to arm parents and communities with knowledge of the mental health continuum. As our kids grow parents often work together on educational, sports and other related needs. When it comes to ages and stages we as parents compare and advise almost daily. Yet when it comes to seeking help for our children’s emotional and mental health we so often turn inward and hide. We aim to change that through knowledge and tools.
Mental health + Physical health = Health.
Personal stories build understanding and empathy. They also make mental health conversations more powerful.
Be in the Know.
You do not have to have a child with mental health concerns to be an agent of change. Chances are there are people in your life already suffering. In a first-ever study conducted by the CDC and Prevention researchers found in children aged 3 to 17 with mental health concerns the cost was $247 billion per year in medical bills, special education and juvenile justice. Struggling families need our help, together with the Youth Mental Health Project we can begin the movement toward change.
