Milwaukee Mental Health Task Force Update from Lubar Center for Public Center:
Insights into Young People’s Mental Health - March 22
Warm Greetings from the Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education at the Marquette Law School.
Mental health issues of young people are drawing more attention. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, one in five adolescents has had a serious mental health challenge, such as depression and/or anxiety disorders, at some point in their life. In fact, half of all mental health problems begin by age 14. For young people with mental health disorders, early intervention and treatment can help lessen the impact on their lives.
To better understand the enormous and multiple needs of children and families and the interrelatedness of problems in the mental health domain, we are asking you to join us March 22nd on the campus of Marquette University for a morning of discussion of issues involving youth mental health.
