Meeting ID: 896 8375 5955

Passcode: 224713

Background

In 2021, 35% of 8 graders in Washington reported depressive symptoms for 2 weeks straight within the past year, almost 16% had a plan to commit suicide and about 1 in 10 had previously attempted suicide.1 Instead of waiting for a crisis to arise and overwhelming the already limited psychiatric crisis support, Washington state youth require support and treatment in addressing a short-term behavioral health condition; however, support is difficult to find, receive, and afford. Youth need to receive high-quality timely interventions to promote their mental health and well-being, learn skills to build resiliency to manage mental health symptoms as they arise and health promotion interventions involving children, youth and families to support their growth into healthy adults.
