Youth and Young Adult Mental Health by the Numbers.

YOUTH/YOUNG ADULT MENTAL HEALTH BY THE NUMBERS via choc.org 

1) 1 in 5 young people have a diagnosable Mental disorder.

2) Half of people with lifetime mental illness have symptoms by age 14.

3) Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death in children ages 10-24. 

-Awareness starting at a young age is imperative. -Treatment is available...it’s often the stigma that stands in the way of parents of youth and young adults seeking treatment.

Tangible Movements goal is to bring awareness, offer solutions, resources, support, coping mechanisms and end the stigma of mental illness.
