|Dear BC2M Community, |
Although school looks a bit different this year, we’d like to give a warm welcome back to our BC2M students and their communities. And to the parents and family members who are working through remote learning with your children, we honor you.We have committed ourselves across the country to be a pillar of stability, a presence for positivity, and a trusted portal of resources for our students. Our program will remain present in our regions: Arizona, California, Indiana, Ohio, and New York and expand into 60 new schools. We recently launched a new region in the North East which will create 35 additional mental health clubs. BC2M’s 2019-2020 school year surveys demonstrated both the impact and the critical need for BC2M Clubs on high school campuses across the country. The Center for Disease Control surveyed adults from June 24–30, 2020 on mental health challenges their communities have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. U.S. adults reported considerably elevated adverse mental health conditions associated with COVID-19. Younger adults, racial/ethnic minorities, essential workers, and unpaid adult caregivers reported having experienced disproportionately worse mental health outcomes, increased substance use and elevated suicidal ideation.The public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic should increase intervention and prevention efforts to address associated mental health conditions. Community-level efforts, including health communication strategies, should prioritize young adults, racial/ethnic minorities, essential workers, and unpaid adult caregivers.Student support is more important now than ever before.Our program was featured on KPIX-TV, a San Francisco based news channel, and the impact COVID-19 has had on youth mental health. BC2M student, Colby Peck, referred to the pandemic as a lethargy where her anxiety feeds into insomnia that creates more anxiety. BC2M is proud to be a part of #MentalHealthForUS, a nonpartisan, educational coalition elevating mental health and addiction in policy conversations around the country. Right, left, center or anywhere in between—we can all agree that addressing America’s struggling mental health and addiction care systems should be a priority. Learn about how @MHforUSis fighting to improve #mentalhealth care in 2020.
