Mental Health Disorders Are Common!
Before the pandemic, 20% youth had a mental health disorder that affected their life at home, school or in the community. But a 2021 poll of Ramsey County youth showed that more than 70% are struggling.
The good news is that mental health disorders can be treated and managed. And many youth with challenging emotions or behaviors just need some extra coping tools and supports.
