The Youth Mental Health Commission

“Building on the recommendations of the Youth Mental Health Commission, we’re going to make sure that parents know how and where to get help, and that our system of care improves to properly and adequately address children’s mental health issues. We must break down the stigma associated with seeking mental health care, and we must do it before children become adults – still undiagnosed and treated, and still suffering. For the health and happiness of our children as well as our entire community, we must continue to keep this issue at the forefront.” – Teresa Jacobs, Orange County Mayor
