The Winterhawks are grateful to partner with Lines for Life to host a Talk Today event to increase public awareness and to promote mental health in our community. By hosting our Talk Today game, Lines for Life and the Winterhawks are helping to eliminate the stigma and discrimination associated with mental health issues and encouraging discussion within the community about mental health.
Here are some key facts about mental health:
- 1 in 5 youth struggle with their mental health
- In the United States, suicide is the third-leading cause of death among 15- to 24-year-olds
- The stigma and discrimination that surrounds mental health issues often keeps people from seeking the help they need when they need it most
- Nearly 60% of youth 25 and under treated for a mental illness in the past year reported being affected by the impact of stigma
