Our young people bring so much promise and passion to our world. It is such a time of life for all of us, and emerging youth. But it is also a precious time. With statistics such as 1 in 5 youth struggle with mental health difficulties, and more than 30 % of youth use or have used substance use. It is definitely a promising time and a scary time. For Black youth, they can also experience systemic oppression and anti-Black racism which can derail their outcomes and create significant barriers to their success.
