As another school year starts, youth may be experiencing lots of different emotions and thoughts. It is important they feel supported by the adults around them.

▪Take notice of when your child may be struggling -- changes in routine may increase their risk of experiencing a mental health challenge.
▪Be comfortable with talking openly about how they are feeling and listen nonjudgmentally.
▪Safely store medications and firearms in your home.
▪Connect them to help.
