why you should support Adolescent Mental Health

As a result of the pandemic, increased mental health crisis and suicidality has become a major focus at St. Johnsbury Pediatrics, an NVRH community clinic that serves more than 13,000 patients annually. Providers are reporting a 50% increase in the amount of time spent on helping children and adolescents, and their families, address mental health challenges.  NVRH has also seen an increase in hospitalization of pediatric patients in mental health crisis. Help us expand services and resources to these adolescents and their families! THANK YOU!

“Life is hard for everyone.”

COVID has definitely been hard for me, and my friends. I was really struggling…worrying a lot and feeling very down.  I did some school counseling but that was hard because of the pandemic, and community counseling was so expensive. Then I heard that my doctor’s office could help, so I began seeing Allison at St. J Pedi.  It was so nice to have someone to talk to that I could easily reach out to whenever I needed support.  I’m so much better now.  For someone struggling with their mental health, I would say this: It’s hard to admit you need help. But life is hard for everyone. So why not get help?  What’s stopping you, really?
