Do you know what to say to a young person in trouble? Across the country, one in five young people lives with a mental health or substance use challenge, yet few reach out for support. That’s why it’s so important we all know how to recognize and respond when a young person may be in need. Help share the newest PSA developed by Mental Health First Aid USA, “Said No Teen Ever,” because there are signs that tell us when a young person might be suffering, but it’s up to us to know what to say and how to help. You can also share four additional PSAs to highlight mental health challenges that young people experience every day like anxiety, depression, eating disorders and self-harm.
