As news about children, schools, and the lasting effects of the pandemic makes clear, there is a growing youth mental health crisis in America. SRL’s teen-led podcast On Our Minds provides information, storytelling, expert advice, and engaging conversation to drive empathy and understanding around the mental health challenges young people are facing. The core purpose of On Our Minds is to showcase authentic stories about the teenage experience – to connect, educate, and inspire listeners of all ages. Its unique model combines charismatic student hosts, interviews with mental health professionals, and audio stories from young people around the country. Through this grant, On Our Minds will return for Season 2 in 2022 with more episodes, more virtual and in-person engagement, and more compelling stories that empower young people and the adults in their lives to talk about mental health and realize they are not alone.
