SYFS to offer free Youth Mental Health First Aid course

May 24th, 2017

Shrewsbury – The numbers are staggering: One in five children ages 12-18 have, or will have, a serious mental illness; four out of five children with a mental illness will go undiagnosed; and 50 percent of lifetime mental illnesses have an onset before age 14. Studies have shown that children with mood or anxiety disorders are nearly twice as likely to suffer from substance abuse.

Not every child who shows moodiness has a mental illness, of course. But too often, parents or others dismiss a situation as “just growing pains” or “typical teen behavior.” That, combined with a stigma that still surrounds the topic of mental illness, can result in many children not getting the support and services they so desperately need.
