One in five teens lives with a mental health condition, yet less than ½ get help. Mental health remains a taboo topic for many so NAMI, with support from SAMHSA, developed a project designed to get teens talking. The project, Say it Out Loud, consists of a toolkit that provides everything you need to engage teens in a conversation about mental health. It includes a short film with the ten common warning signs and three youth sharing their stories, a guide on how to conduct a successful discussion with teens, fact sheets to share with participants and more.
The entire toolkit is accessible online and can easily be downloaded here.
