The Mental Health Podcast S1 E2: Growing Pains - the Mental Health Journey of our Youth

When it comes to mental health, our youth are in big trouble. Suicide is the second-leading cause of death for kids aged 10 to 19 years.  Youth who need mental health services are often not well supported: less than 20 per cent receive appropriate treatment. Why is it worse for youth today than it was years ago? What can we do about it? What should parents know? That is the topic of this episode of the Mental Health Podcast. Kevin Frankish's guests include Stacey Beaveridge, who works with adolescents at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health, and Mike Foreman, star of an award winning documentary called "When Hope Breaks Through".
