The 2016 CHC Breakfast

Promise and potential: A Focus on Teen Mental Health

Children’s Health Council’s Dr. Ramsey Khasho and an extraordinary panel of parents and experts presented an interactive panel discussion, breakfast, and community call to action. 

Right now, we are facing a pressing issue in the community we love and call home: how to reduce the rate of anxiety and depression among teens. Sadly, the teen suicide rate in Palo Alto and the neighboring communities is 4-5 times the national average. We are a community in crisis. Everyone is affected. This is a call to action. 

Speak up!

Let’s keep the conversation going

Your Challenge: Every day for the next 30 days, talk to someone about teen anxiety, depression and suicide.
