Teens and parents are invited to learn about the warning signs of mental health conditions as well as what steps they should take to find support for themselves or their friends.
One in five teens (ages 13-18) experience a mental health condition in a given year and 80% of them are not currently receiving treatment. Get the facts and then hear from a young adult living with mental illness who will share his/her road to recovery. The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions and gain an understanding of an often misunderstood topic. Through dialogue, we can help grow the movement to end the stigma around mental illness.
