Fighting the critical mental health crisis in our youth with Be Iconic's powerful Empowerment Seminars
Mental health has been the subject of major efforts in recent years, but we seem to be falling short of making a true change as a result.
We at Be Iconic Entertainment strive to impact the youth in a positive way through dynamic, powerful seminars that look to motivate, inspire, empower, and improve their mental health.
The alarming true about mental health in young kinds and teens
According to the mental health foundation, over 70% of kids and young people who have experienced or dealt with mental health problems at some point in their life, never actually reach out for help.
What’s even more concerning is that over 50% of mental health problems are already established by age 14. Meaning we are dealing with a large population of teenagers who are suffering alone and in silence.
If you’re wondering what type of mental health issues our kids are enduring, according to the World Health Organization, they’re most commonly going through depression, anxiety and suicide tendencies, something that’s extremely alarming, specially when we consider suicide is the third leading causes of death in 15-19 years old.
Yes, the situation that we’re dealing with isn’t easy, and the problems of not addressing mental health problems from a young age can be cause them to extend all through adulthood, but not everything is lost, and there are very important efforts being made to combat this.
Of course, we’re playing our part too. By empowering these kids , we believe we can improve their mental health. Giving them a zest for life, desire to create their visions and a strive to become the BEST versions of themselves.
Efforts like these are extremely important, since they give these kids a new, fresh option that indirectly improves their mental health and slowly gives them a new perspective on life.
However, these are just small steps, and efforts like this needs to be continuous in order to be effective in the long run, and we’re completely committed to keep on offering these services and MORE to reach this goal.
