The Problem 

Based on a recent study from the Journal of Adolescent Health, adolescents with recent symptoms are twice as likely to dropout compared to peers without. According to Mental Health Association in NYS, youth 16-24 with mental health illnesses are four times less likely to be involved in activities like employment and college.

Mental health education has not become a priority for educators until recently when a new law will be in effect for all NYS schools, which will mandate the inclusion of mental health in the curriculum.
