Click through for important information about our youth. We are passionate about supporting the youth in our valley and hear the call that more is needed at the local level. Kids need umbrellas too! #mentalwellnessforall #mentalhealthmatters #youth #youthmentalhealth Posted @withregram • @mentalhealthamerica Indicators of youth mental health and well-being indicate a growing public health crisis that has only been worsened by COVID-19. Yet, public policy has been slow to respond at the state and national levels. MHA's new report, "Addressing The Youth Mental Health Crisis: The Urgent Need For More Education, Services, And Supports," seeks to document the alarming trends in youth mental health and the disparities in access to care.⠀ ⠀ The report then addresses several innovative state legislative solutions to promote school-based mental health education, supports, and services. ⠀ ⠀ The report also highlights the effect of these policies on advancing equity and the role of youth leadership in securing legislation. ⠀ ⠀ The information is designed to guide advocacy at the state level and begin to create a framework for federal policy.
