(1)

The Stanford Center for Youth Mental Health and Wellbeing recognizes that we are in the midst of a national public health crisis among US youth and is spearheading a new national vision for adolescent and young adult wellness and mental health support. The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is laying the groundwork for the creation of a national initiative for youth through its expertise in early mental health support, development of self-regulation tools, school mental health, and suicide prevention. By creating an innovative health system, and a new culture of health for the adolescent and young adult population, Stanford hopes to create a model for the country in how to better support our young people to navigate the transition to adulthood and realize their full potential as adults. The data on adolescent health and educational success in the US is of great concern. High rates of depression, alcohol and drug abuse, teen pregnancy, youth violence, and low college graduation rates compared to other industrialized nations indicate that something is missing in our support for young people. Adolescence has become a perilous rite of passage for many youth. We need a new culture of adolescent wellbeing across the United States that builds skills, resilience, and opportunities for a healthy path into adulthood. The Stanford Center for Youth Mental Health and Wellbeing is built on 3 core components: 1. Early Mental Health Support and Exceptional Clinical Care 2. Educational and Community Partnerships 3. Mental Health and Technology Program

04/14/2020

Suicide is a complex public health issue & the result of multiple factors. Secondary effects of physical distancing could increase suicide risk (i.e. economic distress, social isolation, decreased access to health care and community support). Therefore, in this moment, safe media reporting is critical to help save lives by minimizing risk for suicide contagion.

Among the tips SAVE and International Association for Suicide Prevention recommend for "REPORTING ON SUICIDE DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC":

-Avoid speculation about causation and reporting on the topic of suicide as only related to one singular causal factor.

-Use caution when quoting grieving survivors making claims about the cause of a suicide.

-Emphasize recovery and available resources and always include crisis numbers in stories.

With the world facing the #Covid19 health crisis & unremitting emergency health reporting, its vital for #media & #journalists to be able to quickly understand & consider best practice related to reporting & suicide.

Why does advocacy for mental health and wellbeing matter for youth? Join us for an intergenerational panel to find out! REGISTER: https://lnkd.in/grYJP_V The Covid-19 pandemic has precipitated the worst global health and economic crisis in modern history. Many young people attempting to enter employment or in the early stages of their careers may face prolonged obstacles in their career progression and financial sustainability due to the current economic crisis. A latent pandemic of mental illness may well be on its way. From embedding Contemplative Studies curricula in universities, to implementing mindfulness practices in local communities, to proposing policy change at the G20 level, actions are being taken to ensure that the next generation of Americans can adopt restorative routines and build resiliency during these unprecedented times.
We know there was some interest from you all last year, so we thought we'd mention that our Dare to Dream America grant is open again this year. Young adults between 13–25 will be awarded up to $2500 to implement a mental health awareness project. 👀 https://www.youthmovenational.org/daretodream/
Grateful for my teen team of Vivian, Juhi, Timothy, and Dorothy as we talk about mental health stigma. It's going to be 2 great days!
At the event, so excited to work with my team of teens.
