Teen mental health
Community and Inclusion
1 in 6 U.S. children aged 2–8 years (17.4%) have a diagnosed mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder.
Among children aged 3-17 in the United States, 4.4 million have diagnosed anxiety and 1.9 million have diagnosed depression.
Nearly half of all adolescents have a mental illness, but only 20% receive treatment.
For teens in particular, the ability to connect with peers, friends, and relatives is critical and can help protect against depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses.
Cohesive campaigns that unify projects around a particular theme or topic
The WhyYouMatter campaign had such a positive impact on our school, that we plan on doing it every year, from now on. During a time of such negativity and sudden judgement, this campaign brought instant positivity and a deeper understanding of our school community and beyond.
