Facebook Live Event: The Youth Mental Health Crisis


Many of the nation’s youth are experiencing increased stress and other mental health challenges, including symptoms of anxiety and depression. As children prepare to return to school during these uncertain times, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) is conducting a Facebook Live event to discuss the nation’s youth mental health crisis.

NIMH Deputy Director Shelli Avenevoli, Ph.D., will cover topics such as the alarming rate of youth suicide, the effects of technology and the pandemic on the developing brain, and what the research says about supporting the mental health of current and future generations of youth.
