Back-to-School Toolkit: Mental Health America


MHA’s 2018 Back-to-School Toolkit provides young people with information to help them understand the effects trauma can have on the mind and how traumatic events may trigger the onset of mental health conditions like depression, anxiety, and psychosis.


By increasing understanding of trauma and recognition of early warning signs of mental health conditions, MHA hopes to encourage young people[and families]  to seek help and support as soon as possible so that they can address issues Before Stage 4
