Youth Mental Health: Young Minds Need Unconventional Support
Show Notes

A youth mental health advocate and a psychiatrist discuss how conventional ways of thinking about mental health are not meeting the needs of children and adolescents. They discuss how  younger generations are more willing to talk openly about mental health – and they agree that this development could not only improve mental health literacy of society, but also prompt new solutions for young people.
