Mental Health: A Conversation for Youth by Youth
Join us for a special conversation on mental health for youth hosted by the Youth Council of Living Room Conversations.
As youth, our daily life mainly revolves around growing our mind- be it through school or relationships. However, when 50% of all eventual mental health illnesses start at age 14 (source: NAMI), teenagers can feel that that time is actually spent struggling with their minds and the changing world around them. From the pressures of social media, being successful in school, disagreeing with loved ones, accessing mental health services, and the disruption caused by COVID-19 – we have a lot to deal with.
In this conversation, we invite you to step back from the pressures you may have in your life, connect with others around how mental health impacts each of you, and find strength in the thoughts you share. We’ll start with a brief introduction and break out into small groups of 4-6 people.
This is a conversation for youth hosted by youth. By registering you are confirming that you are within the age range 16-25.
