As I’ve heard from so many of you and have witnessed firsthand, our children and teens are hurting—hurting themselves and each other. The Surgeon General has declared a mental health emergency among youth, and yet so many of us feel powerless to help. But we’re not powerless when we unite.
That’s why I’m thrilled to announce a special event we’re hosting so we can collectively support our young people in this present moment. We invite parents and caregivers, students, educators, health care professionals, community leaders—all of you—to take part in a national virtual conversation to chart a healthier way forward.
Hear from young people about the state of their mental health and learn practical steps and inspiring strategies for supporting health at home, at school, and in our greater communities from these thought leaders:
Deborah Roberts, Award-winning ABC News journalist
Dr. Lisa Damour, Psychologist, Ask Lisa Podcast Host, and New York Times Bestselling Author
Julie Lythcott-Haims, Activist and Author, How to Raise an Adult
Meghna Singh, University of Michigan Student and Mental Health Advocate
Rick Weissbourd, Founder of Making Caring Common and Senior Lecturer at Harvard
Following the event, you will receive a free toolkit for youth mental health support as well as a complimentary viewing of one of our films, including: Race to Nowhere or Beyond Measure.
In solidarity for our kids,
