Mental Health Support
  • Mental health conditions affect someone’s cognitive, behavioral, and emotional wellbeing.
  • These conditions may include Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, eating disorders, suicidal thoughts, schizophrenia, and addictive behaviors.
  • Youth with mental health problems were more likely to perceive a need for services related to housing and case management than those addressing behavioral health problems more directly.
  • Suicidal thoughts and attempts have been associated with youth of histories of physical and/or sexual abuse, familial substance abuse, and familial psychopathology.
