Youth Mental Health Concerns

30% – 50%

of respondents reported depression, anxiety, and loneliness and showed increasing trends by grades.

The biggest concerns facing teens in Stamford identified by respondents were all mental health related (depression, anxiety, social pressures, body image, and stress).

For too long, mental health concerns have been associated with stigma and dismissed as ‘someone else’s problem,’ until it happens to you or someone in your family.

I am thrilled that through the Youth Mental Health Alliance, our essential human service providers have rolled up their sleeves to identify best practices and trauma-informed strategies that will improve the mental wellness of our community. This evidence-based approach will help build greater understanding of the importance of youth mental wellness and facilitate a comprehensive system of intervention and support.

The Stamford YMHA has partnered with the Stamford Health Department to bring you to the array of mental health resources in our area.
