Adolescence -- we've all been there. Yet despite having first-hand experience with the struggles of teenagehood, it can be hard to know how to support teens through this period of intense physical and psychological change. 75% of mental health issues have an onset between adolescence and young adulthood (13 - 24) and 20% of youth aged 13 - 18 have a mental health disorder.
Despite this well-established need, only a third of those surveyed in the US report undergoing treatment. It's not just teens themselves at risk, mental health is a family affair with impacts that ripple across the entire family system.
Join Ginger’s Chief Clinical Officer, Dr. Dana Udall, a psychologist and mother of two teens and Dr. Dena Scott, Adolescent Services Coordinator for a candid conversation about the state of adolescent mental healthcare in the U.S., and the pivotal role that employers can play in supporting the mental health of employees and their families.
