“There is currently a substance use crisis in our country. The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) is eager to join the Sound the Alarm for Kids campaign to support bold principles promoting children and adolescents' emotional and social health. We must increase resources for our nation’s youth to ensure they have equitable and early access to the comprehensive, evidence-based, addiction prevention and treatment services they need to live healthy lives.”

William F. Haning, III, MD, DLFAPA, DFASAM, President of the American Society of Addiction Medicine

At Young Invincibles (YI), we have heard from young adults time and time again, that they wish they have had a better behavioral health system provided to them and their families growing up. A system that would have prioritized prevention, accessibility, cultural competency, and parity. We have reached a point in history where mental health has been designated as a priority by the White House but it is not enough. YI is proud to be a partner for the Sound the Alarm for Kids Campaign so we can help raise awareness for this national emergency that has started way before the pandemic but has now accelerated to a point of complete urgency.

Cameron Vigil, Rocky Mountain Engagement Manager of Young Invincibles

COVID-19 has had many dire consequences, including the catastrophic emotional turmoil thrust upon our youth, who were in no way equipped to navigate the uncertainties of a global pandemic. It’s time to listen to our experts and address this crisis head on by improving access to care; building a larger, more diverse workforce of providers; and prioritizing prevention and early intervention efforts. As a former educator, I’ve seen first-hand the long-term ramifications of untreated mental health challenges. We cannot stand idly by when the futures of so many are at risk.
