Youth Mental Health

Today I want to further address one of my favorite subjects, our young people.

Since the Columbine massacre in 1999, there have been 147 kids killed in school shootings. One child lost is one too many, but there’s something else. Youth suicide has exploded. For each of the 147 deaths, 400 kids have taken their own lives. Mental health has been shredded even more during the pandemic. We can reverse this disturbing trend.

Let’s begin by acknowledging our young people. They are important and need to know they are accepted and loved, whether that love comes from a parent, teacher or someone else.

Everyone needs human connection, and that includes our young people…
