In Canada, 3.2 million youth between the ages of 12-19 years old are at risk of developing a mental illness. Only 1 out of 5 of these youth will receive the mental health services they need for recovery. Even more staggering is that roughly 70 % of mental health problems have their onset during childhood or adolescence. Identifying the early warning signs of a mental illness and timely intervention are vital to prevent problems from becoming serious.
With the right support and services, mental health problems and illnesses can be treated effectively.
