Healthy Brains = Healthy Lives

More than ever, kids and teens are struggling with their mental health. The resources below will help you successfully support the young people in your life.

Mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, and OCD, affect nearly 1 in 5 children. Evidence shows that addressing the issue as soon as possible is critical.

Understanding more about mental health is the first line of defense in paving a way to wellness, ensuring that adults notice when a child or teen may be struggling and know where to turn for help.
