Is enough being done to increase awareness of youth mental health issues and provide community-based access to youth mental health specialty services?

    i think that help for people who suffer from a mental health issue is not the problem. i think theirs plenty of help. the problem isnt the help, its people to afraid to ask for help. people are too afraid to ask for help because they are scarred of what people think.i dont think its fair that people have to be scarred to ask for help,, because of what other people with of them, there is so much ignorance to issues like this. people are constantly being judged and scrutinized for the issues they have, when half the time its not their fault. i think if you want to help and make this issue better, we should bring awarness to communities. let people know that its wrong to judge people who have mental health issues. and help them become aware of the issues people with mental health go through. it could easily be anyone with a mental health issue. and i think people should be aware of that. i think it will make a small diiference, not a huge one. but i still think its worth it.
