There is a stigma around being open about mental health. We aim to stop that stigma starting at an early age. 50% of Americans will have a mental health condition sometime in their life. Half of those will show symptoms by the age of 14. You are not alone. Support your peers by taking action today and join the MHA Youth Ambassador program.
