• INTRODUCTION

    Mental health is a critical component to overall health, and is often overlooked, especially in youth populations. Mental disorders are chronic health conditions—those that go on for a long time and often don’t go away completely—that can continue through the lifespan. Without early diagnosis and treatment, youth with mental disorders can have problems at home, in school, and in forming friendships. This can also interfere with their healthy development, and these problems can continue into adulthood. Unfortunately, an ongoing stigma regarding mental health disorders inhibits youth and their families from seeking help. If left untreated, mental health disorders can lead some youth to take their own lives.

    This website provides information, resources, and local contacts for the following mental health topics: bullying prevention, suicide prevention, grief and loss, mindfulness, abuse, trainings, mental health conditions, and local contacts.
