YC Spotlight: “Undetected War Within Our Youth”

World Suicide Prevention Day is this Sunday and MNN’s summer youth participants created a video to address this epidemic, which claims the lives of 800,000 people each year.

Check out our YC Spotlight this week to hear stories from our youth about the stigma surrounding mental illness and suicide and the societal pressures that lead youth to feel like suicide is their only option.

Tune in to MNN’s Youth Channel Monday through Friday from 6-7 pm on MNN HD (Spectrum 1993), MNN4 (Spectrum 67, RCN 85, FiOS 36) or streaming live on mnn.org.

*If you or someone you know is contemplating suicide, please reach out to the national suicide prevention hotline: 1-800-273-8255*
