Youth mental health crisis advisory a wake-up call
The recent U.S. Surgeon General’s advisory on the current crisis of youth mental health (The Washington Post, December 7) is wake-up call to our community.
For us at the Mental Health Association of Fauquier County, it underscores the decline in overall mental wellness we have been seeing in Fauquier and Rappahannock counties since before the pandemic began and is an urgent call to action to bolster programs and resources in our community, not only for youth but for all our residents.
