What I Wish You Knew: How adults can support teens facing mental health challenges 

It's a time of intense pressure for teens today, coming from a variety of directions. For parents, teachers and mentors, it's important to understand how to identify signs of distress and help youth get the support they need. 

The best way to support our youth is to listen and understand the challenges they face.

Please join us at 6 p.m. April 30 for a facilitated youth panel featuring a discussion about the pressures teenagers face, the impact it has on their mental health, and what they wish parents and adults better understood about the support and help they need. Together we can identify actionable ways to support our kids.

More information on the event is available here, as well as resources on how to recognize mental health challenges in young adults.

Connect. Reach Out. Say Hello! Find resources and more information at on the Hello Idaho! page.
