More young people in America are struggling with mental health and addiction issues now than at any other point in history, and they are least likely to receive help. Left unaddressed, their needs will lead to suicide, fractured families, weakened communities, and will cost the country billions annually. It is time to ensure that today’s generation, and those to follow, can heal and thrive. Through our solutions, we will empower a generation with the skills to recognize, talk about, and seek care for mental health and addiction conditions by expanding access to the internationally recognized Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training. We will also ensure that care is available to all who need it by expanding Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs) so youth, especially those in marginalized groups, can receive help. We have the opportunity and means to alter the course of mental health for the entire country.
