Your Voice, Your Future Town Hall - "Youth Mental Health"
Tuesday, May 22, 2018
8:00-9:00 pm (PT)
Providing hope and help to young people dealing with mental health issues like depression and anxiety is the goal of KATU's upcoming town hall. We will have four panelists, who are mental health experts, and 40 audience members taking part in the discussion in a KATU studio. The majority of the audience will be young people between the ages of 15 – 25, some of them have overcome mental health issues and now help their peers. Our discussion will also include drivers that can impact youth mental health like social media and bullying. We will also address suicide prevention and where teens can go for mental health help.
