May is National Mental Health Awareness Month, and it arrives as we learn alarming new findings on this matter.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently released findings from a study, showing that 37% of high school students reported their mental health was "not good most or all of the time" during the pandemic and 44% said over the past year, they felt sad or hopeless almost every day for at least two weeks in a row.
A particularly sober finding, Native Americans, Black youth, and LGBTQI+ youth face a disproportionate risk of suicide.
Psychiatrist Dr. Daniel Bober talks to Newsy and explains what might be driving these alarming numbers.
