Understanding the Youth Mental Health Crisis: Livestream Panel Discussion


  • During the COVID-19 pandemic, 37% of high school students reported they experienced poor mental health.
  • LGBTQ+ youth are 4x more likely to attempt suicide than their peers.
  • In the U.S., there is an average lag of 8-10 years between the onset of a mental health condition and the start of treatment.
  • 1 in 5 American youth live with a mental health condition.

In October, the Villa hosted a panel discussion on the current Youth Mental Health Crisis. Community experts joined us to share insights on the current landscape of mental health in our community, unprecedented stressors faced by our youth, and the surging need for access to skilled services.
