A Youth Mental Health Crisis: The Surge After The Surge

NeuroNetwork for Emerging Therapies Mini Symposium Series

Did you know that 50% of all lifetime mental illness begins by age 14 and 75% by age 24? Or, that 70% of youth in the juvenile justice system have a diagnosable mental health condition? How about the fact that suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among people aged 10-14 and the 3rd leading cause among those aged 15-24 in the U.S.?

When you look at the numbers related to the pandemic for adolescents (aged 12-17):

• 1 in 6 experienced a major depressive episode (MDE)
• 3 million had serious thoughts of suicide
• There was a 31% increase in mental health-related emergency department visits

Any way you look at these numbers, it's clear that we, or more precisely our youth, are in crisis. In the next installment of the NeuroNetwork for Emerging Therapies Mini Symposium Series we partner with the Eisenberg Family Depression Center for "A Youth Mental Health Crisis: The Surge After the Surge," the three esteemed panelists will address these sobering issues with presentations followed by a live Q&A.

• Dr. Eva Feldman, Director of the NeuroNetwork for Emerging Therapies
• Dr. Sheila Marcus, Professor of Psychiatry
• Dr. Lia Gaggino, Primary Care Pediatrician

Joining us for the live Q&A will be Dr. Michelle Kees, Faculty Lead, Outreach and Education, Eisenberg Family Depression Center.
