Provided by Community Foundation for Northern Virginia

The mental health needs of Northern Virginia’s youth have increased since 2020. The 2022 Virginia School Survey of Climate and Working Conditions shows that one in ten high school students have seriously contemplated suicide in the past year, while one in three have symptoms of recent clinical anxiety.

Join the Community Foundation on Feb. 1 for a discussion of the next Insight Region® report to be launched that morning, “The Shape of Youth Mental Health: Finding a Way Back from Sadness and Stress for Northern Virginia’s Teens.”

This report follows “Finding our Way Back to Mental Health” launched in March of 2022 which identified the extent of mental health needs in the region’s adult population.

The event is open to the public and is free to attend (in-person or virtually), though limited in-person seating is available.

Presented by Elizabeth Hughes, Senior Director of Insight Region® – Community Foundation for Northern Virginia.
