Episode 5: Teen Talks Suicide & Mental Health
In a powerful episode, host Suzie Lawry-Hall sits down with 17-year-old Acacia Fullner to talk about mental health — something many children struggle with. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 17% of kids ages 6-17 experience a mental health disorder. The Chico High School junior opens up about her anxiety and depression, the struggles she and many other teens face, and a friend’s recent suicide. Jocelyn Beauregard, a Lead Social Worker with Enloe Behavioral Health, joins them to explore mental health, share how parents can talk to their children about this subject and more in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month.
