Children and youth are struggling with their mental health and need help. In recent years, we have seen big increases in depression, anxiety and youth thinking about suicide. As a result, the use of suicide hotlines, outpatient psychiatric services and emergency room visits among children and youth has grown. For more information on Children's Mental Health, visit asklistentalk.org.

You feel stressed - we feel it too. Since 2020, stress levels have gone up in populations across the world. But stress doesn’t have to derail our lives. The Address Your Stress campaign explains how stress affects the mind and body - and what you can do to interrupt stress before it causes harm to you, your family, and your community.
Suicide is a serious, but preventable public health problem. Integral Care, as the local authority for behavioral health and developmental disabilities, has taken the lead on initiatives to help educate our community in hopes of collaboratively preventing suicides from occurring.
