World Mental Health Day 2018

2018 mental health day

Today is World Mental Health Day, and the World Health Organization (WHO) wants you to learn more about mental health conditions in adolescents. The WHO reports that suicide is the third leading cause of death in 15-19 year olds. The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services reports suicide as the second leading cause of death for Kentuckians ages 15-24. To learn more, visit the Kentucky Suicide Prevention Group. If you or someone you know is in crisis, contact a mental health professional, or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK.
