About Mental Health & Suicide

It's normal for children and youth to experience various types of emotional distress as they develop and mature. For example, it's common for children to experience anxiety about school, or youth to experience short periods of depression that are transient in nature. When symptoms persist, it may be time to seek professional assistance. One in every four to five youth in the general population meet criteria for a lifetime mental disorder--early identification and intervention are key to successful recovery.
