End the Teenage Mental Health Crisis

The kids are not alright. Teenage mental health is in crisis. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that 1 in 3 high-school girls have seriously considered attempting suicide, with a record-high number of teenage boys experiencing mental distress as well. Mental health affects all of us, but so many struggling don’t get the support they need. We must:

  • Guarantee universal, quality, & affordable access to mental health care.
  • Expand Telehealth services to reach young people in rural America.
  • Launch a national initiative for suicide prevention.
  • Create a culture that fosters hope and community and addresses the root causes of teenage mental health issues by: promoting healthy social connections, supporting academic access without forcing undue pressure, and de-stigmatizing mental health treatment.
