The conversation about the rise in mental health issues among young people continues. Dr. Phil speaks with 22-year-old Emma, who says she was a cheerleader and “picture-perfect American girl” who appeared happy on the outside but was secretly struggling with severe anxiety and depression, which led her to make a near-fatal decision that changed her life forever. Ross Szabo, the wellness director at Geffen Academy at UCLA, the CEO of the Human Power Project, and co-author with Melanie Hall of Behind Happy Faces: Taking Charge of Your Mental Health, says he has ideas to implement more mental health education in schools. And, Massachusetts's Congressman Seth Moulton shares his latest project: the new 9-8-8 National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Americans experiencing a mental health crisis or who are concerned about the mental health of a loved one are now able to dial 9-8-8 and get rapid, free, trained and confidential help from a network of 200+ local crisis centers nationwide.
