Stressed Out! Young People and Mental Health

The rate of depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation and/or completion, stress and substance abuse are skyrocketing among this generation’s youth and young adults, in part due to the combination of contemporary challenges, such as heightened exposure to social media and risk of cyber-bullying and school violence, with more traditional stressors like school, family life, sports and friends. This concerning trend is spreading across Colorado, and the nation, leaving parents and family members, peers, educators, coaches and community members feeling helpless and confused.

In response, Mental Health Partners launched a Young Minds Matter community lecture series focusing on teens and emerging adults’ mental health, and how parents, educators, peers and community members can provide support and guidance in midst of a changing and complicated modern world.

On Thursday January 24th the series will focus on stress and strain experienced by young people. The speaker will be Chris Bader, PhD, Director, Psychological Health & Performance, University of Colorado Athletic Department. The event is at Mental Health Partners’ Ryan Wellness Center | 1000 Alpine, Boulder, CO.
