Jefferson Parish: Teen Mental Health

Did you know that 1 in 5 teens and young adults lives with a mental health condition? Or that more than half of them develop the condition(s) by age 14? (https://www.nami.org/Find-Support/Teens-and-Young-Adults)

The sooner someone can access mental health services, the better. Many suffer for years before finally receiving help. Parents who know about the signs and common misunderstandings of mental health conditions are better equipped to support their kids and help them access available services.
