  • Mental health has become a big issue in the past few years. Mental health has slowly started to become one of the leading issues in kids' school age. Many people like parents don't understand mental health and how it's affecting their kids. Many parents say that their kids aren't affected by mental health and that it's just laziness or their kids being rebellious which isn't always the case. Mental health is more serious than more people think and more people should understand mental health and what it does.

  • Unrecognized or undiagnosed mental health can cause kids to slack off or not be able to pay attention. Mental health affects kids that are in school-age are more affected by mental health than any other age. Many teens when they are struggling they go to their parents to talk about what is happening and most parents don't believe it's mental health and think they are just being lazy. More parents should read or learn more about mental health so they can help their kids if they are struggling. The CDC writes about how mental health affects kids and their everyday lives “Mental disorders among children are described as serious changes in the way children typically learn, behave, or handle their emotions, causing distress and problems getting through the day.” (“Data and Statistics on Children's Mental Health”). Mental health mostly affects kids that still live with their parents. Since mental health has become a bigger problem than it was when most kids' parents were kids, many parents don't know about mental health. That's why more parents should know more about mental health.
  • FALLIG ACTION 
  • thank you for talking to me
  • When teens actually try to seek help they seek help from their peers because most parents don't understand their problem. That's why more parents should read or know about mental health to help their kids if they are struggling. If more parents know about mental health and how it affects kids then they could help their kids through it if they are going through things. 
  • CALL TO ACTION 
  • MENTAL HEALTH IS MORE SERIOUS THEN YOU THINK. LEARN ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH.
  • Talking to someone like parents that understand it can lower suicide rates and help with mental health. Talking to parents helps kids express their emotions with someone close to them. Being there for your kids is so important because it can save a kid's life. Imagine having a kid that is struggling with mental health and not knowing and punishing them for no good reason.
  • Many kids struggling just need someone to look up to and talk to their feelings to. Many kids' parents don't understand the severity of mental health and don't know how to help their kids. An article about adolescent mental health says. “Globally, one in seven 10-19-year-olds experiences a mental disorder, accounting for 13% of the global burden of disease in this age group.” (“Adolescent mental health”). This says that mental health affects mostly school-age kids that still live with their parents. It is important that parents know about mental health. That's why more parents should read about it to help if their kids are struggling
  • Mental health is more serious than many people think and that's why we should make sure that everyone knows about it and the severity. That's why you as a parent or a friend should read more about mental health and how it affects kids. Reading more about it can help lower rates of mental health and help kids get through it.
