New Ebooks Minnesota Curation: Mental Health & Social Issues for Kids and Teens


Ebooks can offer support to kids and teens suffering from mental illness. Teen suicide has risen dramatically over the past several years and one in five young adults and teenagers suffer from some form of mental illness. Whether it's bullying, shyness, or family issues, kids need help navigating thoughts, feelings, anxiety, pressure, and stress they may be experiencing. With ebooks, kids can access and search for information relating to mental health issues with privacy. This new curation in Ebooks Minnesota can be accessed directly at z.umn.edu/kidsmentalhealth.
