“The Massachusetts Association for Mental Health (MAMH) has launched a new multimedia campaign aimed at empowering young adults to take charge of their mental health. #JustAsk includes a series of videos, social media messaging, and a centralized website to find resources promoted through the campaign. Research indicates that young adults (ages 18-24) have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, with 56 percent reporting symptoms of anxiety or depression compared to 41 percent for other adults. Young adults also are more likely than other age groups to report increased substance use and suicidal thoughts during the pandemic.” (May 19, 2021)
