1 in 5 teens and young adults live with a mental health condition . Depression is the leading cause of illness in this age group. Youth who are socially disadvantaged, minorities and migrants are particularly affected.
Young people may often be uncomfortable discussing their struggles. So many times, it’s up to their families and friends to notice when they need help. It may also be up to you!

Additionally, whether we are well or unwell, we all need meaningful relationships. This course will analyze the science of healthy connections and friendships. While helping your friends to thrive you will thrive yourself.
