Yes it should, I don’t know how many studies we need, or why we even need studies to show us, that getting to a mental health condition early is always better than later!
The message I try to leave with teens is that they are not alone. Millions of people around the world live with mental illness. Recovery is possible and help is available. They only need to speak up, end the silence, and get help—the sooner, the better.
I’m glad there are folks trying to speak to young people about mental health. Reaching them at that age is better that dealing with the untreated consequences later on.
