We're working to ensure this "new normal" prioritizes youth mental health.
COVID-19 has - and will continue to have - an unprecedented impact on youth mental health. Support systems that were already overtaxed are being pushed beyond their limit. Young people have restricted access to community supports. Some are stuck in homes that are unsafe, while others don’t have a space to call home. Many are navigating unemployment and the financial fallout of the pandemic. We're working around the clock to make sure young people have the education, resources, and community they need right now in order to look out for their own mental health and that of their peers.
Thank you to our generous partners who continue to support our COVID-19 response efforts.
