Mental Health Should be #1

We are slowly coming out of a global pandemic. There is a feeling of giddiness in the air. But for many, their mental health has gone off the rails during the past 16 months, particularly the youth.

Sandy Hook Promise’s new PSA campaign, “The Kids Are Not Alright,” is intended to raise awareness and prevent tragedy. I am so impressed with what the leaders of Sandy Hook have accomplished since the tragedy in their idyllic town. They continue to drive home kids’ emotional, mental health issues that can turn into tragedy from violence, shootings, suicide, self-harm, and depression.

These three PSA’s give me chills. We should all watch them and pay attention to those around us who are having a tough time. The pandemic might be over but the mental health issues are not especially as a teenager.
