Understanding & Supporting Youth Mental Health Booklet

Thank you for contacting the Youth Mental Health Project.

We all have mental health, the same way we all have physical health. Yet, as a society, we don’t talk about our children’s mental health. In fact, 1 in 5 children in the U.S has a diagnosable mental health condition, and more than 80% of those youth will never receive the treatment they need. By directly educating families and communities about youth mental health, and indirectly helping to reduce the blame, shame, silence, and misunderstanding that surrounds it, the Youth Mental Health Project helps to increase prevention and early intervention that can reduce the incidence and severity of youth mental health conditions.
