The teenage years are hard. Our teens face daily challenges deeper than we can imagine. From traumatic childhood experiences to stress at school and social media, there is no doubt our teenagers face more adult issues than we ever did. Trauma and prolonged periods of stress can lead to anxiety, depression, addiction, eating disorders, mental health conditions, and the nightmare of teen suicide. 

There is no doubt America is facing a youth mental health crisis. That is what we can see. But, the youth mental health crisis is just the tip of the iceberg. It is the pain beneath the surface that is killing our kids. To end the crisis, we must address the emotional pain - the driving force behind substance abuse, addiction, broken relationships, school violence, and suicide.

Conference

“Amy is entertaining and informative -  that’s hard to do as a presenter! She gave us a lot of information but did it in a way that was easy to understand. I imagine sharing her personal story is difficult but it is very helpful to help relate to the information. Her courage is appreciated and admired.”
