Mental health challenges among our youth have been particularly acute due to disruptions in routines, increased social isolation, and learning loss. Research has shown that social media plays a central role in increasing mental health challenges among young people – especially young women. Emergency department visits for attempted suicide among girls in 2021 increased by more than 50% compared to 2020. American Indians, Alaska Native, Black youth and LGBTQI+ youth also face a disproportionate risk of suicide. (A Proclamation on National Mental Health Awareness Month, 2022)
