Say It Out Loud for Youth and Young Adults‏

One in five teens lives with a mental health condition and yet more than half are not getting the help they need. Stigma remains a huge barrier to teens seeking help. Suicide is a risk and many cite fear of negative perceptions as a major factor in choosing not to speak up.

Say It Out Loud is a free tool that NAMI has developed for youth faith communities and civic organizations to encourage conversations about mental health with teens and young adults. Check out the Say It Out Loud Video
