Surgeon General Advisory: Unprecedented Youth Mental Health Crisis

Powerful statistics that match exactly what schools are experiencing: "one in three high school students and half of female students reported persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness, an overall increase of 40% since 2009."


I liked the overall positive message - "Seize this moment, step up for children and their families in their moment of need, and lead with inclusion, kindness, and respect, we can lay the foundation for a healthier, more resilient, and more fulfilled nation."
