(some of) the facts

More than 40% of high school students reported

feeling so sad or hopeless that they could not engage

in their regular activities for at least two weeks

during the previous year—a possible indication of the

experience of depressive symptoms. These rates are

higher for female students (60%) and LGBQ+ students

(70%). (CDC YRBS, 2021)

Suicide is the third leading cause of death among

high school-aged youths aged 15–19 years. (CDC

FastStats Adolescent Health, 2021)

Nearly 70% of adolescents (aged 12-17) perceived a

negative effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on their

mental health. (SAMHSA, 2021)

50% of mental illness begins by age 14, and 75% begin

by age 24. (American Psychiatric Association, 2022)

The consequences of failing to address adolescent

mental health conditions extend to adulthood,

impairing both physical and mental health and

limiting opportunities to lead fulfilling lives as

adults. (World Health Organization, 2021)
