Mental Health in May

As May is coming to a close, we want to take a moment to remind everyone about the importance of mental health. This is a health concern that affects people of all ages, races, and genders. Even our kids are not immune.

20% of kids aged 13 – 18 are living with a mental health condition.

3.2% of kids aged 3 – 17 have been diagnosed with depression. That’s almost 1.9 million kids.

7.1% of kids aged 3 – 17 (almost 4.4 million) have been diagnosed with anxiety. That’s not counting each child who has yet to be diagnosed and getting the help they need.

Treatment rates vary depending on the diagnose mental disorder.

Nearly 8 out of 10 kids are received treatment for depression.

6 in 10 children with anxiety received treatment.

1 in 6 children aged 2 – 8 years has a mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder.

What Can You Do?

Parents: LISTEN to your kids. Always BELIEVE them. Always LOVE them.

Get professional help. Counselors, mentors, advocates, and so many more are here to help.
