Worried about your tween, teen, or young adult's mental health?

Half of all mental health conditions start at 14 years of age. But, most cases are undetected and untreated.
Globally, depression is one of the leading causes of illness and disability among adolescents.
Suicide is the third leading cause of death in 15-19-year-olds.
The consequences of not addressing adolescent mental health conditions extend to adulthood. It can lead to impairing both physical and mental health. Thus, limiting opportunities to lead fulfilling lives as adults.
