Ask, Listen, Talk, Repeat

Our kids are struggling with their mental health and need help. In recent years, we have seen big increases in depression, anxiety, and youth thinking about suicide. As a result, the use of suicide hotlines, outpatient psychiatric services, and emergency room visits among children and youth has grown.
