Teen Mental Health Crisis + What is Schizophrenia?
Dr. Laura Erickson Scroth, psychiatrist and Chief Medical Officer of The Jed Foundation, joins Kimi to discuss the mental health crisis facing America's teens and young adults.
Increasing isolation, social media, climate change, social unrest, and an onslaught of online information flooding their brains are wreaking havoc on young adults. By listening, validating their experience, and speaking up when you see a young person showing signs of distress, adults can make a significant difference in the lives of teens.
Dr. Laura also discusses last week's episode with Michele Gonzales-Reed, explaining how schizophrenia affects approximately 1% of the population and is surrounded by misunderstandings and policies that prevent treatment.
