Episode 34: Hot Topics Mini-Series: Youth Mental Health Matters

February 14, 2022

This episode will focus on how the pandemic has impacted the mental health of children, adolescents and young adults. Even before the pandemic began in 2020, there was a lack of mental health services for young people. Half of mental health conditions begin before the age of 14, and three quarters by the age of 24. Across the US, there is a lack of systems in place to identify youths at risk. This episode will address the lack of access, need for action as well as signs and symptoms of mental health issues in young people. The role of community partnerships, the Surgeon General’s call for action and tips to help clinicians, schools and parents support young people will also be discussed.
